Richmond’s Den is back for 2013

Following the success of last year’s competition, budding or growing social entrepreneurs are invited to ‘Take the Next Step’ – all it takes is 500 words to enter.

The winner will walk off with a £10,000 prize package but all entrants will benefit. Shortlisted entrants will receive tailored support to develop their business ideas; all entrants will be offered support through workshops and other events throughout the year.

Full details are at and you can also follow us on Facebook at

Key points
‘Take the Next Step’: doing something as simple as expressing the idea is perhaps the most important part of this programme, even if you go no further in the competition.

Entry is simple: 500 words through the online form – the website contains all the guidance needed. Entry window: 22 March to 9.00 on 7 May 2013

The winner will receive a £10,000 cash prize and runners up £1000, both to help develop the enterprise further.

Tailored support for shortlisted entrants: approx 13 May to 7 June, provided by members of Richmond Social Enterprise Partnership.

Workshops/events for all entrants: September onwards.
