We are a social economy consultancy

 

For Business Sake is a social economy consultancy. As providers for the social impact and investment adviser market, we provide an essential bridge between the supply (funders/investors) and demand  (social enterprises and charities) of the social impact and investment sector.

Our support helps grantmakers and social impact investors to engage with diverse, overlooked, underrepresented and disadvantaged communities and increase their capacity to provide social impact, grant funding, social investment and advisory support.

 

The complexity and scale of support needs consistently vary from one diverse community business to another and therefore require a wide range of service areas such as access to finance, business support, resources and social capital (networks).

To date, we are delivery partners for various social investment programmes. We have assisted in distributing over £20m in social impact and investment to diverse, women-led, Black, and Racialised social entrepreneurs.

We are professionally qualified consultants, business advisors, coaches and mentors with an unmistakable passion for seeing and supporting overlooked, underrepresented, excluded and marginalised communities.

We like to focus on projects, programmes and research that looks at:

  • the barriers in place for diverse, women-led, Black, and Racialised social entrepreneurs, social enterprises, charities and community businesses accessing funding and enterprise support,

  • the barriers in place for diverse, women, Black, and Racialised employees within all sectors of the workforce,

  • Supporting diverse employees suffering from ill mental health due to structural inequalities within the workforce based on their protected characteristics.
