WHAT IS BEYOND THE FINISH LINE?

APPLY NOW

Beyond The Finish Line is a one year programme to mobilise young people (16-30) in Glasgow to regenerate their local areas by setting up social enterprises to be tested throughout 2014.

We want driven, dynamic young people to come up with social enterprise ideas that respond to the challenges. We will then offer 10 of them (individuals or teams) the support, mentoring, space and funds they need to test their ideas in the 6 months leading to the Commonwealth Games, with six months further support to becoming sustainable social enterprises, delivering lasting social benefits to local areas.


We have consulted with the people in Glasgow about the social/environmental/community issues that affect their local areas and have framed these as opportunities in the form of Challenges.  If you are motivated to get a social enterprise up and running in 2014, read the Challenges and Apply before the Launch Weekend, starting 21st February.

We consulted with the people of Glasgow about the social/environmental/community issues that affect their local areas and framed these as opportunities in the form of Challenges.  These challenges have had an overwhelming response from young people who want to start their own community driven social enterprise.  

We chose driven, dynamic young people to build social enterprise's that respond to challenges and offered 15 of them (individuals or teams) the support, mentoring, space and funds they need to test their ideas in the 6 months leading to the Commonwealth Games, with six months further support to becoming sustainable social enterprises, delivering lasting social benefits to local areas.
