The Academy

The Academy provides guidance and support to people with early-stage ideas to solve social problems, sparking a new generation of social entrepreneurs.

The Academy is for ambitious, driven individuals with an entrepreneurial aptitude and passion for social change, who are looking to move from exploration to action.

This five day programme, over the course of five months, will guide fifteen participants through a development and capacity building programme. The programme, worth in excess of €3000, will help kick-start their idea and support them to take the next steps. At The Academy for Social Entrepreneurs participants are supported to develop and progress their ideas for social change with coaching and training in areas such as project design, leadership, business modelling, branding, and planning for the future. 

More detailed information about The Academy programme for 2018 will be available in January.
