We provide cutting-edge support and affordable loans designed for your social venture

Seedbed is one of ten projects in the UK funded by the Social Incubator Fund which is backed by the Cabinet Office. It is a new type of social accelerator programme that offers intensive support and affordable loan investment for social ventures in the South West.

Since launching in April 2015, the Seedbed programme has helped 30 social ventures to achieve their goals. Whilst our second year is already under way, our programme is still open to social ventures looking to grow but requiring finance and support to do so.

Aimed at social ventures that are further ahead in terms of growth, but will benefit from affordable loan finance and development support to reach their goal, the Growth Stage takes the programme one step further. If you’re looking to expand, enter new markets, launch a new product or create a new service, a Seedbed loan could help ensure your vision is achieved.

If you’re interested in joining our investment and development programme, call Sam Haydock on 01803 847066 to arrange a phone conversation with our director Dirk Rohwedder.
