Helping hand for new businesses


A partnership between Boston College and TaylorITEX has been established to fund new enterprise and social entreprenuers through offering start-up awards.

The funding of the awards from £100 to £5,000 are provided by UnLtd and Esmee Fairbairn – both keen supporters of new enterprise and entrepreneurs alike.

Called Lead the Change, the programme, funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, aims to develop innovative approaches to supporting community and social entrepreneurs, and to learn and share what works.

For two years UnLtd will work with 12 not-for-profit community and voluntary organisations to implement a programme of support that provides funding and development support. Details via
