As part of its 2017 Awards Programme, Social Entrepreneurs Ireland has added an extra €5,000 to the winnings that applicants can compete for. The initiative recognises and rewards the most innovative ideas and energetic entrepreneurs to solve social problems in Ireland.

The top eight entrepreneurs are offered an immediate €10,000 in unrestricted funding and a place on an accelerator programme worth €15,000, with access to over 150 pro-bono supporters, coaches and mentors. The programme will explore options for further funding and support from Social Entrepreneurs Ireland.

The deadline to submit applications is the 29th of March. The 15 winners now also have a chance to pitch for up to €5,000 in funding to get their idea off the ground.

CEO Darren Ryan said there has been increased interest from financial supporters, adding to the existing funds available for the winners of this round. “We’ve seen how the support from the commercial business sector can assist social entrepreneurs in making a huge impact across Irish society, and we rely on this support to make this change happen,” he said.
