Big Issue Invest Scotland have just launched Power Up Scotland with a call to action to apply by 30th August.
Here’s a film with some information on the programme - What is Power Up Scotland?. The programme is for early stage social enterprises (ideally not pre-trading) who are looking at taking on a loan for the first time, and who would benefit from a mentoring programme tailored to their social enterprise.
This year BIIS are working with Aberdeen Standard Investments, University of Edinburgh, The Scottish Government, Brodies LLP, Experian and Places for People. The aim of the mentoring programme is to provide the mentees with a range of cross-sector support and to widen their networks. Also to offer them a patient, low interest loan of up to £50,000.
They're also planning some information days and I’ll send on venue details nearer the time. Date are:
