Social Entrepreneurs Ireland is hosting the 2012 Awards Programme, to support individuals with new, big ideas for social change in Ireland.
The Awards Programme will see eight social entrepreneurs awarded across Social Entrepreneurs Ireland’ two support programmes: The Impact Programme and the Elevator Programme. Three social entrepreneurs will be awarded with a place on the Impact Programme. Each of these will receive a package of support worth €200,000 over two years to help them to scale the impact of their project/organisation. In addition, five social entrepreneurs will be selected to take part in the Elevator Programme. Each of these will receive a package of support worth €35,000 over one year.
Social Entrepreneurs Ireland believes that Ireland needs new, big ideas to address social and environmental challenges. They believe that social entrepreneurs provide such high impact innovations. For this reason SEI directly supports high potential social entrepreneurs to enable them to maximise their impact.
