The £10m three year Investment and Contract Readiness Fund on behalf of the Office for Civil society is now open.
The Fund will support social ventures to build their capacity to be able to receive investment and bid for public service contracts.
We've put investors at the heart of the process because as providers of investment they both understand what investment ready ventures look like and have a keen business driven interest in helping social ventures with the greatest chances of success secure this support.
We are interested in hearing from -
- Social ventures that would like advisors to support them expand and prepare for investments and / or getting public sector contracts.
- Investment advisory support providers with a track record of supporting organisations to investment and contract readiness.
- Potential investors in social ventures interested in learning more about the Fund and the pipeline of investible opportunities it intends to create.
The Fund now has 18 approved providers. Social ventures need to find an approved provider to work with before applying to the Fund.
