Coalfields Community Challenge

July 16, 2012

The challenge looks for imaginative ideas that generate sustainable businesses and create jobs.

The Coalfields Community Challenge has been created for new and emerging social entrepreneurs working or living within former coalmining communities who have ambitions to start and grow a social enterprise creating new employment opportunities but who need business support.

The Challenge provides a unique combination of business development support, mentoring and training over six months plus the opportunity to pitch to the Coalfields Dragon’s Pit at the end of the Programme to win an award of £25,000 to help kick start their social enterprise.

All applications to the Challenge Programme must be received by 5pm on Friday 3rd August 2012.
