Funding Deadline for Level Two Awards Approaching

Funding Deadline for Level Two Awards Approaching
Firstport
August 2011

Firstport are on the look out for Social Entrepreneurs who are in the start up phase of their social enterprise.  If you have already developed and tested your idea but need more time to implement it then a level 2 award could pay for your living expenses. Level 2 awards are awards of up to £20,000.

The fund is targeted at people who can provide evidence that they have tested or piloted their model and can demonstrate it delivers real social impact.  Additionally, applicants need to demonstrate a trading track record – that is, generation of income that is not grant funding.

The next deadline to submit your application and business plan is Monday 5th September 2011.

You will need to submit an application form along with a full business plan for your idea. The business plan needs to be submitted by email. A Development Manager will be on hand to guide you through the process if necessary and we have business support advisors to help you develop a business plan if you need some help and advice.  You will find the full application guidance along with the full criteria at www.firstportfunding.org.uk

 If you have any further questions relation to our applications process you can call our enquiries team on 0131 220 0511.
