Three months ago, Fanfare was lucky enough to be accepted onto the Resurgo Ventures Accelerator programme. This Accelerator is focused on social impact entrepreneurs, equipping small businesses with all the tools needed for growth, scaling and becoming investment ready.
Last month Resurgo Ventures hosted a showcase, allowing each of the social impact ventures on the scheme to demonstrate their business model and highlight the positive impacts that their brands are already creating for society.
The night was a huge success, and you can see Fanfare’s full pitch by clicking this link (starts at 1:06 hours). If you are interested in watching all the other ventures you can see the full night through the same link.
Resurgo Trust is one of the biggest charities in the UK, working to connect, train and support people with the single goal of transforming society together through business. The hope is that by supporting scalable enterprises that value positive change, they will be able to reverse the escalation of many 21st century social issues that are disproportionately affecting the most disadvantaged in our communities.
A few years ago, Resurgo Trust launched Resurgo Ventures, a 12 week accelerator program that offers a structured learning program to social impact entrepreneurs. The program grants 6 months of access to a co-working space in central London as well as regular contact with industry experts who guide the entrepreneurs through the startup stage of their businesses.
Highlights for us have definitely been meeting new and lifelong friends, along with the opportunity to work collaboratively with other amazing social impact entrepreneurs. Receiving guidance from industry experts has also been pivotal at this stage in our growth process. Mentoring from the likes of Liz Earle and Dean Sanders (founder of GoodBrand) has provided an unparalleled opportunity to ask questions and learn from some of the most successful global brands.
During the program we have participated in workshops and seminars covering foundational elements such as financial modelling and business strategy, and more specialised elements such as design thinking, mental wellbeing, digital marketing and capital raising.
