We were delighted to co-host Crowdbacker with Year Here
once again to support the new social enterprises of the 2018 Fellows.
The ventures seeking seed funding on the night were:
• Sarah and Dan from bloom six, who raised £4,400 to recruit, train and match mentors with students to reduce exclusion in education
• Aviva from EVERYBODY, who raised £4,000 to connect families of children with disabilities and additional needs to help them enjoy everyday fun, in everyday places, with everybody else
• Angie and Tessa from Lemonade, who raised £4,800 to provide emotional support to young people with mental health issues
Rachel from Plastic Shed
, who raised £3,400 to develop a recycling workshop bringing people together to make beautiful things from plastic waste, and
Matilda and Anna from Split Banana
, who raised £4,900 to provide 21st Century sex education in secondary schools
More than 200 enthusiasts raised over £21,500 together for these five exciting new social enterprises. A big thank you to Year Here for being great partners, NatWest
for hosting the evening, to BNY Mellon
and all who gave generously on the night.
