We run a competition for social ventures to gain investment funding twice a year (usually in December and June). The QM Social Venture Fund makes an equity investment of £15,000 in the winning social ventures, and provides ongoing support post-investment.
We are focused on investing in early-stage, for-profit social enterprises, where social impact is at the core of the business, and is not just a by-product.
Our impact investments are made with the intention of generating measurable, beneficial social or environmental outcomes, in addition to a financial return. Ventures selected for investment are expected to grow their impact alongside financial performance.
Applications for our next round of funding (March 2023) are now open. If you are interested in finding out more about accessing funding, do get in touch or apply through our start-up application form.
