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.
What are the Social Enterprise Awards?
The awards help individuals and teams to take action and make the world a better place. Since 2013, 37 different ventures have been supported, from a community cafe to a soap recycling enterprise. You can find examples of our award winners featured on Enterprising Oxford's website, including Project Soup, Common Ground, Language Amigo, Pick Me Up Parcels and SociAbility.
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 one-to-one check ins with staff from Oxford Hub, introductions to our network, free publicity and free room hire at our home on Turl 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.
