How un-social sector of us…

There’s a lot of talk in the market about Investment Readiness and Capacity Building programs, but few real results are being generated. So how on earth is anyone meant to navigate this mess and figure out where to go for help?

If you’ve ever tried to navigate the wonderful world of social enterprises and intermediaries you’ll know just how confusing it is. Sadly, intermediaries haven’t made it any easier for those seeking help. In fact, from reading websites and hearing people speak at events, it all sounds like much of a muchness.

 

 

“Two Feet was designed by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs; because building a business isn’t an academic activity that happens in a bubble!”

— Bessi Graham, Entrepreneur & CEO of TDi

 

At The Difference Incubator, we want to take the confusion and the risk out of it for you.

TDi’s Two Feet program is designed by entrepreneurs, for entrepreneurs. Two Feet gives you the foundations you need to build a sustainable enterprise that can do good and make money. We’ve been there and know personally how hard it is to design, build and grow an enterprise that is focused on both delivering a positive social or environmental mission and a commercially viable business.

We want to help you on your journey and be a sounding board for you and your team.

 

 

“I would highly recommend the Two Feet program to any social enterprise looking to grow”

— Anna Robson, Founder of Two Feet graduate enterprise Refugee Talent

We are so confident that our Two Feet program gets results that we are offering you a money back guarantee! How un-social sector is that?

Every enterprise that participates in our six-month accelerator program will leave with a clear understanding of:

  • The critical elements needed to build a sustainable business
  • The specific gaps in their current business model, and
  • What to do next on their journey towards sustainability.

If you’re not 100% satisfied that you have achieved these results we will give you your money back. It’s that simple.

What 10 years and deep curiosity has taught us

Last year TDi celebrated 10 years, and over that time we’ve had the opportunity to travel with a number of organisations and often get a bird’s eye view of what’s going on. Recently, TDi’s CEO Anthea Smits, had the opportunity to reflect on what the past 10 years and deep curiosity has taught us. This article is a reflection on our top 6 learnings.

Reflections on a year of Crisis and Challenge
