We are a Social Enterprise

Backed by investors at Nesta, City and Guilds and UnLtd, we provide guidance, support and opportunities to early talent, matching them to their futures in employment.

What makes a social enterprise different?

Well, firstly we’re committed to making a sustainable difference – we’re not a charity dependant on grants and gifts. We believe that to create solutions that will last, we need to find ways of delivering them efficiently, effectively and economically.
That means our customers pay us for the solutions we create. As a Social Enterprise, we’re committed to re-investing continuously in our business. Our shareholders understand this. We take it so seriously, it forms a major part of our formal agreement between the founders, our shareholders and senior management team.

A theory of change

To help us manage this process, and check our progress, we created a ‘Theory of Change’ model with Nesta when they first invested in the business in 2014. This theory of change is continually used to evaluate our impact; how many young people are able to make better decisions about the options open to them, and ultimately how many opportunities are created, and filled.
