  • Firstport - Social Entrepreneurs - Boost It

    Created: 14/10/2020

    Boost It is a brand new fund to help social entrepreneurs in Scotland to strengthen their businesses so they can successfully increase trading.

    It is delivered by Firstport as part of the Social Entrepreneurs Fund, which is funded by the Scottish Government. Boost It is designed for early stage social enterprises (trading for 3 years or less) that require either a higher injection of capital to get the business off the ground, or further financial support to strengthen and sustain trading. The fund is specifically targeting those social enterprises who need to increase their levels of trading, rather than those looking to scale up. Currently Boost It will focus on supporting ideas tackling the Climate Emergency- circular economy, carbon reduction.

    Who can apply?

    Boost It is for legally constituted social enterprises that have been trading for up to three years but needs further support to increase trading activity and become sustainable. The next deadline for this fund is 03 November 2020. Further eligibility and application details can be accessed here.
