UnLtd are designing an online tool to help UK entrepreneurs launch social companies and they need your help

UnLtd, the foundation for social entrepreneurs and the law firm Bates Wells Braithwaite are designing an online tool that entrepreneurs running limited companies can use to create company articles and governance that reflect their purpose.

The aim is to make it easy for social entrepreneurs and mission-led businesses to declare and commit to a purpose beyond profit.

The tool will cater for start-ups as well as more established businesses, and for businesses that have a primary social purpose as well as those who wish to create social impact alongside commercial goals. The project is a direct response to the recommendations of last year’s Mission-Led Business Review.

There are three ways you can get involved straight away:

1. If you’re an Entrepreneur who has setup/is in the process of setting up a company in the UK – Fill out a survey

This will help them gather the current challenges and opportunities in this process so that they can ensure their design will create value for the people who use it. (Their is a prize draw for just filling out the survey if you like gifts…).

2. If you’re a smart thinking, solutioning, creative or just an awesome soundboard – Attend a focus group

Drop them a line to join one of their scheduled focus groups and contribute more actively to the design process.

3. If you’re a force of nature in social enterprise at a local level and this post has you buzzing with ideas that are a good match – Become a partner

This collaborative project is co-funded by the Office for Civil Society, and UnLtd and BWB are working with Companies House and other relevant organisations.
