Big Potential Advanced is delivered by The Social Investment Business on behalf of the Big Lottery Fund and is aimed at ensuring VCSEs (Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprises) are better equipped to secure new forms of investment and compete for public service contracts.
Big Potential Advanced supports more established organisations that are looking to raise in excess of £500K. The programme will deliver approximately £10m of grant funding until late 2017 enabling eligible VSCEs to access grants of between £50K – £150K for specialist investment and/or contract readiness support from an approved Big Potential provider.
Tony Seaton, Associate Director, Blue Sky Corporate Finance, said: “We are delighted to have been accredited as a Big Potential Advanced provider. We pride ourselves on knowing who is in the market for investing, the types of opportunities they are looking for and how best to approach them for finance and believe VSCEs will benefit hugely from the experience and expertise we can offer in helping them become investment ready. We look forward to supporting VSCEs in their endeavours to deliver even greater social impact.”
