Good Practice Information
The Hampshire School for Social Entrepreneurs is a year-long programme that social entrepreneurs attend for approximately one day per month. The programme provides bespoke training, mentoring and support to support budding social entrepreneurs to set up their business successfully.
Students do not require any academic qualifications to attend the course, just a great idea for a sustainable social enterprise, and the passion and determination to make it happen.
Evidence of success
Creation of 36 new social enterprises. Brought in over £450k of external investment. Many of the social enterprises set up have worked with those who are legally or financially excluded. Many of the students have their own stories of exclusion, and this is what motivates them.
