Striding Out has launched the Social Pioneer Summer Academy for aspiring young social entrepreneurs.

The Social Pioneer Summer Academy is for young people aged 18-25 who have an idea for a social enterprise. A social enterprise is a business which operates for a social or environmental purpose and impact, and reinvest’s its profit to further support its cause and mission.

The lucky participants will have access to the following support to give themselves and their social enterprise the best chance of success:

  • Training workshops in business skills
  • A business coach for one to one support
  • Mentoring support from specialist experts

The academy will help the participants to:-

  • Develop and test their idea
  • Develop their business plan
  • Design and implement their marketing and sales strategy
  • Secure start up funding
  • Build a team of volunteers and employees
  • LAUNCH their social enterprise

We are currently running two SP Summer Academies, one in Hammersmith and Fulham in London and the other in Liverpool. The academies are open to individuals who are residents in either of the target geographical areas.
