Change it

Change it!

Moseley Community Enterprise Awards:

a competition for young social entrepreneurs.
We aim to help young people launch ventures that can change the places where they live for the better. You provide the inspiration; we provide a place and the support to make it happen.

The challenge

Moseley Post Office has joined up with Moseley Community Development Trust (CDT) to launch a competition for young social entrepreneurs. We are seeking to improve our neighbourhood through social enterprise activity. In particular, we are looking for young people with a social mission, an enterprising solution and an understanding about how to deliver their ideas.

What you could win

Winners of this competition will be awarded a year’s co-working membership at the Moseley Exchange; a place to meet, work and set new projects in motion. There are three co-working memberships to be won, each worth over £1000. It’s the perfect place to start a new social enterprise and provides opportunities to collaborate with other entrepreneurs based in the Moseley Exchange, meet with business development agencies or attract investment from a established entrepreneur.
• Your business idea should aim to make life better in Birmingham
• You must live in Birmingham
