Funder offers

People leading social change need investment, but they also sometimes need support in ensuring they can make the best of that investment for maximum impact.

The Academy’s ‘funder plus’ offer can be before, during or after a period of funding. We support leaders to develop new ways of thinking – growth mindsets, enterprising mindsets and global mindsets. 

Funding alone does not create social change; people create social change. Business plans in themselves do not ensure a successful social enterprise; leaders and leadership determine outcomes. We develop the skills to maximise the impact of your investment. Our peer learning approach ensure fundees develop social capital as well as an awareness that the problem they are trying to address can be solved. 

Types of funding partnerships
