Oxford Hub is delighted to work with the University of Oxford’s Research Services to offer Oxford University staff and students the Social Enterprise Awards, helping members of the University to test their ideas and start up social impact projects that benefit the Oxford Community
The awards help individuals and teams to take action and make the world a better place. Since 2013, over 40 different ventures have been supported, from a community cafe to a soap recycling enterprise. You can find examples of previous award winners below, as well as plenty of in depth case studies on Enterprising Oxford’s website.
Through the Award Scheme we offer social entrepreneurs:
Funding: depending on whether your proposal is a vague plan or a tried and tested model, we have two options. The first is a Try It award of up to £500, or secondly you may apply for a Do It Award of up to £5000.
Support: including check ins and training with staff, introductions to our network, free publicity and room hire at our home on Little Clarendon Street.
Community: the opportunity to join a community of ambitious individuals tackling social and environmental issues in Oxford, whether through social enterprise, placements, or volunteering.
