What do you need to provide?
We ask you to submit an Expression of Interest via our contact page.
A member of the investment team may also call you or arrange a meeting in order to find out more detail. If necessary, we may request further information on your business plan and social impact at this stage.
What will Big Society Capital do?
The investment team member responsible for the application will assess strategic fit and eligibility. They will take a one-page recommendation whether to proceed to full due diligence to our Investment Committee. We will generally communicate the decision to you within 24 hours of the Investment Committee.
How long will it take?
We aim to get back to you within two weeks of receiving your Expression of Interest to confirm next steps and whether a meeting or call will be required. Timescales then can vary depending on the need for additional information, the number of pending proposals we are considering and the scheduling of our Investment Committee.
The next application stage is then due diligence of your proposal.
This stage aims to build an externally tested understanding of the social issue and your proposed solution.
This stage aims to formalise the goals and responsibilities that have been agreed between us.
We adapt to proposals that fulfil our mission while living up the legal obligations linked to the sources of our capital.
