We find and support social entrepreneurs on every step of their journey

Our vision is an Ireland where people solve every social problem

Our Three Key Pillars

Wrapped around all these pillars and across every stage of the journey is the Social Entrepreneurs Ireland community of alumni and supporters

Our Three Key Pillars

& Our Community

STEP

We know that the first step of the journey is often the hardest one to take. We support social entrepreneurs from idea stage through to pilot stage.

LEAP

When a social entrepreneur has taken the first steps, the following stage often requires a leap of faith. We support social entrepreneurs as they navigate this risky part of the journey.

SOAR

For social entrepreneurs who have developed a scalable model, we help them to develop themselves and their organisations to deliver impact at scale through bespoke financial and non-financial supports.

COMMUNITY

Wrapped around all these pillars and across every stage of the journey is the Social Entrepreneurs Ireland community of alumni and supporters.

OUR IMPACT

500

SEI has been on the journey with MyMind for over 10 years. Our first Award from SEI was back in 2009 so we know just how valuable both the financial and non-financial supports are in growing our reach and impact, and we look forward to working together over the coming years
