Incubation - Social Enterprise

"I enjoyed going on the tour,

seeing various social

enterprises to see what

exactly they do and how

they advocate themselves

to the community."

- Melissa, Pioneer student

Through our incubation work, we

support students who have new ideas

for projects or social enterprises that

tackle social and/or environmental

issues.

In first semester we saw 10 students

join our Pioneer programme, learning

about social enterprises and visiting

local social enterprises in Winchester

to meet entrepreneurs.

As part of this course, students also

had the chance to go to the University

of Portsmouth to compete in the

annual Dynamo challenge, working in

teams with students across the South

Coast and Portsmouth FC on issues

such as plastic pollution at matches

and attendance to women's football

games.

Finally, we saw three students

awarded up to £500 for new social

enterprise ideas including: a

vegetarian bakery; that benefits

rescued animals; a production

company that hires people with mental

health needs; and a clothes company

that provides activities to improve

mental health.
