Do you have a great project that can bring a positive change in Mauritius? An Impact Accelerator can help you bring it to life.
Every business starts with one main ingredient: An idea, which turns into a project.
But how can you tell if your project is viable? And, more importantly, how do you turn that project into a successful business which can help the community and the environment?
That’s where an impact accelerator can make all the difference.
From refining your business’s vision to offering you the network and support you need to succeed, collaborating with an impact accelerator is the first step many social entrepreneurs take on their journey to a successful business.
Benefits Impact Accelerators offer:
They help you scale up your impact with a strategic plan
Scaling a social enterprise is a project which comes with its unique set of challenges.
Assessing the current strength of your business, and making sure it delivers on the triple bottom line (profit, people and planet) takes a slightly different skill set than regular business acumen. An angle unique to social entrepreneurship is important.
By working with an Impact Accelerator, you’ll benefit from the knowledge and guidance you need to start thinking strategically for success in social entrepreneurship.
Learn from leaders in the field
Working with an impact accelerator lets you tap into the knowledge of other entrepreneurs and professionals. Learning from others who have gone through the same challenges as yourself and understanding how they found success is key to scaling your social enterprise.
They’ll tell you what you need to hear (and not what you want to hear)
It’s a fact that a social enterprise, despite its mission to do good, is a business. Working with an Impact Accelerator helps you to assess your scaling plan and helps you to calibrate it so that the time and resources, you commit to your project are well spent.
They can help you secure funding
Some impact accelerators can show you how to secure funds for your project or even supply some of the funding themselves. For example, at Trampoline, we understand that a little push goes a long way and have an annual fund of up to Rs 1 million to share among the social enterprises that we coach.
They can help you develop essential skills
Impact Accelerators do more than provide you with advice. They can also help you develop the practical skills you need to succeed. At Trampoline, we offer workshops that train social entrepreneurs to improve their management skills, set KPIs, and improve their business plans.
They’re a great place to network and meet your peers
The journey to a successful social enterprise can be a long one. So if you can, it always helps to make some connections and friends along the way. Your Impact Accelerator can be a potent networking hub where you can meet other like-minded entrepreneurs, learn from each other, and maybe even collaborate to have a greater impact on society.
