Following a large donation from a philanthropist, the Transform Foundation has announced plans to establish a charity incubator. This will function like many of the leading tech incubators such as Y Combinator, Seedcamp or Entrepreneur First, but purely for the purpose of creating scalable registered charities or social enterprises.
In 2018, applications for the first batch of the Transform Incubator will open. The Transform Incubator will provide new charities and other not-for-profit organisations in the United Kingdom with a grant of £10,000, 6 months of office space, legal support and mentorship from some of the UK’s leading social entrepreneurs and technologists. The Transform Incubator is a 6-month program culminating in a Donor Day where participants will have the opportunity to pitch to dozens of the UK’s leading philanthropists and grant making organisations.
