Opening a new round of applications for LaunchMe, our accelerator programme, is one of our favourite times of the year. There is always an anticipation as to who will apply and who will make the final cut. Will they be entrepreneurs we have supported through one of our other programmes? Or maybe a dark horse that came out of nowhere?
LaunchMe, Scotland’s social enterprise accelerator programme has opened its fifth round of applications, looking for innovative social enterprises with the ambition to grow and achieve social impact at scale.
