Founder of the Eden Project, Sir Tim Smit, has supported the launch of the Yorkshire Venture Philanthropy (YVP) investment program.
The YVP investment program seeks to boost investment in social enterprises in the region by attracting investors in the private sector. Sir Tim has appealed for more dynamic champions of a business model whose power is somewhat undervalued.
Village Capital announced the winners of the $50,000 prize awarded to social entrepreneurs who don’t “self-define as social entrepreneurs”. The winners didn’t start out thinking of themselves as social enterprises.
