From Social Entrepreneurs Ireland:

Introducing our 2021 Impact Awardees 


We’re delighted to introduce you to our 2021 Impact Awardees – ByoWave, Mother Tongues, Peer Education Technologies, Positive Carbon and Shapes of Grief. These five incredible social entrepreneur-led organisations are addressing the exclusion and isolation caused by inaccessible games controllers, inequalities for multilingual families, a lack of supports for people with dyslexia, food waste and the need for increased grief education through their solutions.
The SEI Impact Programme is an accelerator programme that identifies high-potential social entrepreneurs and supports them through funding and mentoring, as well as providing access to a network of support. Over the next nine months our Impact Awardees will receive training in areas such as fundraising, governance, leadership, and storytelling, in addition to receiving €20,000 in unrestricted funding,
