Springboard Programme -2018 Incubating social enterprises

In January 2018, Badur Foundation re-launched its Social Enterprise Competition to identify and develop social enterprises that improve the employment chances and livelihood of people in deep poverty. The competition provides organisations or teams working in highly disadvantaged communities with vital professional and financial support for starting a new social enterprise. Badur's professional partner is NESsT Hungary.

The Call for Application was launched in January 2018 and close to twenty applications were received. After the thorough assessment of the applications, Badur selected five organisations and commissioned NESsT to provide 5-month training and one-on-one mentoring to elaborate their business plans.

The selected organisations and teams are the following:

After the final pitch in September 2018, Badur Foundation will award selected organisations with financial support to start their venture. The available funding is 10,000,000 HUF. Additionally, the selected organisations may receive further capacity building tailored to their needs.
