We believe social enterprises have amazing potential to create both economic and social benefits to communities across Scotland.
However, we recognise that the social enterprise model does not suit every idea.
Over the last few years, we have seen an increase in the number of ideas (around 30%) that apply for our support, but that due to their legal set up, we are unable to support. This is not because they lack commitment to their social mission, but because they are not able to use a social enterprise structure due to the type of idea or sector.
FirstImpact is our sister company, set up to work with enterprises and entrepreneurs across all sectors who want to structure and grow their businesses in a way that is profitable, mission-led, and impact-focused.
