The Accelerator is a four-month programme intended to propel and rapidly accelerate small but successful social enterprises, uniquely combining expert tutoring, business support and social investment. It connects inspirational people – leading thinkers and doers who are determined to make social change happen.

The Young Foundation Social Innovation and Investment Team provides support and finance to organisations currently underserved by traditional private and public sector funding routes. We have a thematic interest in identifying high potential ventures in the fields of health, education and places that are focused on changing people’s lives for the better.
