Social Enterprise Implementation Funding

Organizations that have participated in an Innoweave Social Enterprise workshop and are clear on the business that they would like to develop and the assistance that they require to move forward (e.g. conduct a feasibility study/develop a business plan) are invited to apply for Innoweave Social Enterprise Implementation Funding. 

Funding applications are reviewed twice annually. Organizations that have attended an Innoweave workshop can submit funding applications up until the first working day following January 1st and July 1st. Applicants will receive a response within 4-6 weeks of these deadlines. 

To apply for funding:

  • Fill out an online application here. This application will include basic information about your organization.
  • Develop a project plan and attach it to your online application. This should include more detailed information about your project goals and needs.
  • Provide us with information (e.g. a bio, website, or merely a link back to the innoweave coaches page) on the coach you plan to work with (this can be attached to your online application). 
  • Fill out all forms in full and do not forget to hit "Submit Application" when you are done.

Expressions of Interest

Organizations that have not attended an Innoweave workshop can submit an Expression of Interest directly to by May 15th or November 15th (or by the first working day following the 15th). Expressions of Interest will be reviewed by the Innoweave team; organizations will be notified within 2 weeks of the Expression of Interest deadline if they are approved to proceed to a full funding application. When submitting, please include "Expression of Interest" in the email subject line.

More information about the funding process can be found on our Funding FAQ page.
