[Episode 103] How do you fund a social enterprise? Camilla Elwood from UnLtd fills us in

You know the saying ‘not all superheroes wear capes’?

We think this sums up every social entrepreneur out there, including our very own CEO, Joy Foster.

They’re the peeps who spot a social problem and then go out and create a business to solve it. 👊 Their mission is fuelled by a passion for making an impact, changing lives for the better with an idea that makes money AND does good.

Perhaps we’ve just described you. Or this is someone you aspire to be. If so, this week’s podcast with Camilla Elwood from UnLtd is for you.

Here’s why you need to tune in

TechPixies wouldn’t be here without UnLtd and the grants and support it has provided; as Joy describes in this episode, UnLtd has helped propel TechPixies forward. And if you’re a social entrepreneur or are thinking about becoming one, it can do the same for you.

You’ll find out more about the funding options UnLtd offers and you’ll hear about some of the companies it’s helped (Camilla’s stories are SO heart-warming 😍). And if you’re not even sure what a social enterprise is, don’t worry! Camilla explains all.
