Fri, 21/08/2009

The SEATI programme jointly funded by the Office of the Third Sectori (OTS) and NESTA (National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts ) is now open for applications. NESTA's Public Services Innovation Lab is working with OTS to provide a year long Social Enterprise Access to Investment (SEATI) facility designed to give social enterprises the best advice to help them access risk capital.  The facility will offer a success fee that will incentivise brokers of advice to help social enterprises access funds.
The programme compliments other initiatives to increase supply of risk capital for ambitious social enterprises and aims to find and test new ways for social enterprises to gain the advice and support they need to access new forms of growth finance. To find out more about accessing the SEATI programme contact seati@nesta.org.uk with a short outline (no more than 100 words) of the services provided, details of the investment secured and a short description of your social enterprise client.
