Since 2018, the IEP has run two scale-up programmes, supporting organisations with proven on-the-ground solutions to grow and positively impact the lives of even more people.
These programmes have already had amazing results and the IEP has:
- Engaged over 250 organisations;
- Formed over 200 partnerships;
- Directly leveraged over £6 million in funding, grant and investment support; and
- Ensured access to fairer services for at least 120,000 people across the UK.
We are now delighted to launch our third scale-up accelerator programme: BOOST 2021. By unleashing the power of partnerships, this programme will provide organisations working on solutions to mental health, financial inclusion, transitions to work and digital inclusion with the ‘boost’ they need to positively impact the lives of even more people across the UK.
This six monthly bespoke scale-up programme is free and does not require you to give up equity.
BOOST will kick off in March 2021 and will be delivered by a unique partnership between the Cabinet Office, DCMS and the Young Foundation.
That new approach is a partnership model: getting business, civil society and government to work together on solutions to age-old problems. We believe partnerships like these are the most effective catalyst to improve life chances, unleash potential and ultimately build a more inclusive society.
