As we face unprecedented and continuous change in our society due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we know many more people want to solve social problems in their communities, but the first step is often the hardest one to take. The SEI spark programme is designed to make social entrepreneurship accessible to people from all backgrounds, with a particular focus on people from under-represented and marginalised communities.
Through learning, engagement and funding opportunities, we hope to provide the initial spark that will set some amazing ideas alight. The Spark programme for 2021 is now complete. Sign up to our newsletter to hear more about our 2022 events!

2021 Spark Session
We’re delighted to be able to share a recording of our 2021 Spark Session. The aim of the event was to demystify what it is to be a social entrepreneur, inspire attendees to take action and show how SEI can support you on your journey.
