  • Firstport - Social Innovation Competition

    Created: 12/04/2018

    Firstport is celebrating Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018 by looking for individuals with the most exciting, innovative and enterprising new ideas for working with and for Scotland’s young people.

    The Social Innovation Competition celebrates and supports individuals and start up enterprises in Scotland that are using their creativity and imagination to solve pressing social issues. Eligible applications must involve innovative ideas and solutions to social issues or challenges affecting young people aged between 8 and 26. This could be through giving them access to new opportunities, helping them to overcome barriers and inequalities, or improving their quality of life. They will give priority to projects working directly with young people, as opposed to those whose main activities are directed at providing benefit to other organisations. You can use the prize money to help pay for some of the start up costs including: legal fees; intellectual property or trademark applications; rent; website, branding, logo design; marketing materials; stationery; insurances.

    The next deadline for applications is 30 July 2018.
