Social Enterprise

Over the last 15 years, Olmec has supported 100s of BMC social entrepreneurs start and grow their own social businesses.

Our social enterprise support has been tailored to guide entrepreneurs from pre-start right the way through to established and mature businesses. Whether you have an idea for a social enterprise you would like to develop, or need support growing an existing enterprise, we have the right support for you.

Are you thinking of starting a social enterprise, or a business that does good? Or do you have a fledgling business you would like to get off the ground? Have a look at First Steps in Social Enterprise.

Do you have an established social enterprise that you would like specific support with? Have a look at our Step Ahead programme.
