Social Founders

Social Founders is offering connections with a wide range of mentors to support you with challenges and learnings for your organisation.


Mentors come from different backgrounds and experience, depending on who and what you are looking for - many of our mentors are experienced founders and CEOs, Finance Directors and fundraisers in the social impact sector; we also have mentors in the corporate, marketing, media and digital sectors, and in the consultancy and audit worlds.They are all known to us personally or come personally recommended through a professional connection.


Here’s a lovely quote from one of our mentors that came through recently:


“Social Founders asked if I would be interested in mentoring one of the founders in the Social Founders network, who is at a key stage in his development. I have been able to share some of my own experience as a seasoned social founder and CEO of a long-established large UK charity, and act as a sounding board for the way forward and to help his new organisation scale up. 
I am thoroughly enjoying supporting the founder, who is building an innovative, impactful and much needed organisation, whilst he is also being an inspiring role model to others.”


We were thrilled that this young founder also recently won a very competitive and prestigious Churchill Fellowship award, and are sure that our mentor’s support helped make that happen.
