Green and Social Month 2023

We are dedicating the month of April to young green and social entrepreneurs.

We believe in the power of young entrepreneurs to be a force for good and address some of the greatest social, environmental and economic challenges of our time. Across our global network, we see young entrepreneurs build businesses with a social or environmental mission, combining profit with purpose.

Young entrepreneurs' desire to solve social and environmental issues through their businesses is also evidenced in our latest research report 'Tomorrow's  Entrepreneurs: What they think, how they work, and what sets them apart'. Based on a survey of over 1,000 adult UK business owners, directors, and self-employed people, the report found that:

  • 41% of young entrepreneurs say their business focuses on promoting diversity and social good, even if that comes at the expense of profit
  • 39% of young entrepreneurs say their business's primary aim is to solve a social or environmental problem
  • 51% of young entrepreneurs choose suppliers which do good for society, even if they cost more or they have to compromise in some other way

This April, we are highlighting young green and social entrepreneurs and the impact of their businesses, the challenges they face, how our network is supporting them currently and what can be done to support them better.

Throughout the month, we are hosting a series of weekly webinars digging into some key topics around how we can collectively provide the best possible support to young green and social entrepreneurs. In each session, we will be joined by exciting speakers playing a key role in enabling social and green entrepreneurs to thrive, from organisations like the Global Steering Group for Impact Investment and The Possibilists.
