Wicklow Partnership / The Entrepreneurs Academy: Social Enterprise Climb Programme
The National Social Enterprise Policy for Ireland defines Social Enterprises as: Innovative, entrepreneurial and increasingly utilising new technologies and creative approaches to address social, societal or environmental challenges. If you (or somebody you know) live in rural Wicklow and are aged between 18-35 with a passion to build a project that will create and sustain a significant impact then the Social Enterprise Climb programme can really help you make that happen.
This is a first of its kind programme, proudly delivered by The Entrepreneurs Academy on behalf of Wicklow Partnership.
Our Social Enterprise Climb Programme is a 15 week part time course aimed to help participants develop practical entrepreneurial skills in Social Enterprise. Participants will explore and develop new or existing business ideas to determine their viability. In accordance with current government guidelines, the programme will take place on Zoom.
The participants will be guided on a journey of enlightenment on all things entrepreneurial, covering everything they need to know from A – Z. From ideation and idea twisting and testing, to leadership and team building, through to all the nuts and bolts required, such as financials, legal aspects, marketing, networking and sales. There will be an emphasis on how tech can support new entrepreneurs and how to maximise time using these tools.
The course itself comprises of the following which will all take place online using Zoom:
- 8 boot camps on Saturdays.
- 7 weekday evening workshops that will take place on Wednesday/Thursday evenings.
- 8 participants will receive a complete bespoke website for their Organisation to help convey their vision and mission to all.
