SEI is inviting budding social entrepreneurs with innovative ideas to solve social problems to apply.
Up to 60 people with early-stage ideas will win a place on the Ideas Academy where they will receive training and mentoring as they take the first steps from idea to action.
The four-month programme runs in three locations around Ireland – Cork, Dublin and Galway.
Up to eight places are available for Social Entrepreneurs Ireland’s prestigious Impact Programme aimed at high-potential social entrepreneurs.
The 11-month accelerator programme includes €20,000 in direct funding and significant non-financial supports across areas such as strategy, governance, business modelling, fundraising, communications, and leadership.
Throughout the month of March, SEI will visit several cities to host Connect & Learn events. The events will provide potential applicants the opportunity to learn more about SEI’s prorgammes and application process, and connect with fellow budding social entrepreneurs.
The southern event ‘Connect & Learn South’, will take place on Tuesday next, March 10th (12.30 – 2.30pm) at the Republic of Work, 12 South Mall St, Cork.

Applications are now open for the Ideas Academy – aimed at those with early-stage ideas, and Impact Programme – aimed at those who are ready to grow and scale their existing projects, until midnight on Tuesday, 7th April. Interested candidates can apply or find out more at www.socialentrepreneurs.ie
