Social Entrepreneurs Ireland recently launched a national call for applications.
They are encouraging people across the country who have an innovative idea to solve a particular social problem to “be the change you seek” by applying for a place on its Ideas Academy – aimed at those with an early-stage idea to solve a social problem or Impact Programme – aimed at high-potential social entrepreneurs looking to grow the impact of their organisation, and believe that our programmes might be of particular interest to your network.
SEI will host an informative Spark Session event for potential applicants on Monday, 7th March at 1pm. The event will outline the supports available through the two programmes. On the eve of International Women’s Day, attendees will hear from two SEI alumni – Madeleine Murray, co-founder of Change by Degrees and Sinead Ryan, founder of Little Fitness. SEI staff and alumni will be on hand to answer questions about the application process over the course of 90 minutes. Registration for the Spark Session is available HERE.
Since its foundation in 2004, SEI has supported more than 500 social entrepreneurs all around Ireland who have directly impacted the lives of millions of people and contributed significantly to creating employment opportunities.
Applications for the Ideas Academy and Impact Programme are open until midnight on Tuesday, 5th April. Apply or find out more at www.socialentrepreneurs.ie.
