Social Entrepreneurs Ireland Awards Program provides direct support to social entrepreneurs with a solution for a social or environmental problem in Ireland.
Social Entrepreneurs Ireland is an organization that directly supports high potential social entrepreneurs by providing them with financial investment, education and networking locally, regionally and nationally throughout the island of Ireland. Since 2005, Social Entrepreneurs Ireland has provided support to 142 social entrepreneurs, directly investing over €3.7m into supporting these exceptional individuals.
Much like last year, Social Entrepreneurs Ireland will collect applications and go through a selection process to choose the eight social entrepreneurs that will take part in the Finalists Program.
The Finalists Program consists of a series of group and individual workshops with Social Entrepreneurs Ireland and external consultants to help them to define and explore their project purpose and goals. At the end of the Finalists’ Program, three finalists will be awarded a place on the Impact Program and five finalists will be awarded a place on the Elevator Program.
Applications are open until February 18, 2013 for people living in Ireland who meet the eligibility criteria.
