Advice from our alumni on why you should #ApplyToSEI

Don’t miss the opportunity to apply to our 2021 Ideas Academy and Impact Programme! 

We’re looking for people from all backgrounds with courage, ambition, and a passion for social change who want to take the first step in their journey from idea to action, or those who have already taken those first steps and who need support to take that leap of faith to grow their impact.

April 2021
Make sure to get your application in ahead of the deadline!
Our national call for applications is kindly supported by DCC plc.
The Ideas Academy is supported by Bank of America (Lead Corporate Sponsor), Lifes2good Foundation (Ideas Academy West) and the Tomar Trust (Ideas Academy South).
We’re delighted to be able to share a recording of our recent Spark Session. The aim of the event was to demystify what it is to be a social entrepreneur, inspire attendees to take action and show how SEI can support you on your journey.
The Spark programme is kindly supported by the eBay Foundation.
In 2020, Social Entrepreneurs Ireland piloted the Action Lab, a 4-month programme aimed at supporting early-stage social entrepreneurs who were testing and piloting their solution to a social problem.

We worked with 13 social entrepreneur-led projects and organisations as they navigated this uncertain part of the journey at an even more challenging time – during the pandemic. Watch the video above to learn more about the programme and to hear from our participants!

The Action Lab was kindly supported by Lifes2good Foundation. We look forward to running the programme again later this year.
