Big Venture Challenge is a national competition to find 25 of the most ambitious social entrepreneurs in England.
The 25 winners of Big Venture Challenge receive an initial £25K grant and the chance to access up to £150K of seed funding if matched by loans or equity from co-investors, plus first class business support and mentoring designed to keep pace with high growth social entrepreneurs.
These social entrepreneurs have vision, talent and determination. In other words, they are:
people with big ideas to transform disadvantaged communities across England
people who have got what it takes to build credible ventures
people who have the ambition to scale up impact fast
