What is the Accelerate Programme? 

Accelerate is a 12-month programme run by the EY Foundation for social entrepreneurs under 30 and/or social enterprises focused on supporting young people into education, employment or enterprise.

Since 2015 EY Foundation has supported over 270 social entrepreneurs. From Crackedit (phone repair who employ hardest to reach youth) to Change Please (coffee vans who employ ex-homeless) Accelerate focuses on how your social enterprise can scale up its business and increase its impact.

Our programme is open to enterprises across London, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow and Edinburgh.
