Seedbed, Dartington – new programme for social businesses

Introducing Seedbed: Support and investment opportunities for social ventures in the South West

What is Seedbed?

Seedbed is a new venture combining the expertise of Plymouth University, Dartington Hall, and South West Investment Group. Together, with funding from the Cabinet office, we will provide a programme of support plus social investment for developing social ventures in the South West.
The programme will take place over 25 days from April to December 2015. During this period, ventures will learn how to successfully compete for tenders and contracts, service growing markets and play a significant role in supply chains and B2B activity through a programme of workshops, master classes, business panels, webinars and more.
