UK’s first Accelerator programme focused on Black Social Entrepreneurs.
We are looking for Black entrepreneurs who are making a positive impact in their communities. At the Impact Residency, you’ll get the mindset, tools, and network to help you grow your social enterprise and become an extraordinary entrepreneur.
The Residency is a 6-month programme during which you’ll receive 1-on-1 mentoring and coaching, group workshops, and have access to our network of partners and investors. You will be part of a cohort of exceptional founders, and the wider community of The Collective Foundation. The events of the programme run for 3 full days in the first week of each month, during which you will stay at The Collective’s co-living building in Canary Wharf.
The programme is fully funded by The Collective Foundation.
If you’re looking to make a difference in your community, we will help you do just that.
Eligible entrepreneurs will have to have a majority stake or major decision making power in the organisation.
Social impact must be the top priority of the start-up. We accept both non-profit and for-profit organisations that align with our four Focus Areas: Economic Opportunity, Health and Wellbeing, Social Integration, and Environmental Sustainability.
You are able to show us that your product or service has already benefited people. While it’s not a hard rule, we typically work with start-ups that are less than 5 years old and have not yet raised Series A funding.
We accept candidates from across the UK. Candidates will, however, need to ensure attendance in London for the monthly event programme (subject to future COVID-19 travel restrictions and public health guidelines).
