Wates Giving Social Enterprise Funding
Wates Giving Social Enterprise Fellowships at InnovationRCA are awarded to start-ups with ideas or designs that address clear societal needs. Projects receive financial support (up to £20,000) through bursaries and business mentoring.
A social enterprise applies commercial strategies to maximise improvements in human and environmental well-being, rather than purely maximising profits. Social enterprises can be structured as for-profit or non-profit.
Wates Giving Social Enterprise Fellows for 2016 are:
- Hsin-Hua (Sheana) Yu & Daniel Garret, Aergo
- Katarzyna Zmyslona, Nudge
- Setareh Shamdani, Antton Peña, Verse
