As we celebrate our 4th Birthday, it feels like a good moment to reflect on the past few years and think about our future. We bring together a community of social and environmental entrepreneurs and the strength of our community is fundamental to our existence and success.
Without the inspiration, experience and support of our members and partners over the past four years, we would not be where we are today. We have a lot of people to thank.
We have told some of this story in our new report, ‘Our Journey to Impact.’ Launched this week, it tells the story of our evolution from an empty floor in New Zealand House to a thriving community. We have supported over 2,000 social and environmental entrepreneurs to connect, learn and collaborate, have hosted over 3,000 events, and generated over £4m in revenue since 2011.
We’ve achieved a great deal thus far, and the future looks even brighter. We’re bringing our expertise in delivering support programmes for social and environmental businesses to cleantech. We’re launching our first ‘cleantech accelerator’ in 2016 to deliver bespoke, sector-specific support to entrepreneurs working to combat environmental issues such as climate change and resource scarcity.
We have a range of friends and partners sharing the report with their own networks and we invite you to have a read and share it as well.
