Flying Start aims to support 30 local women from inner city Birmingham to start sustainable social enterprises using non-traditional approaches. Our delivery approach uses four elements: leadership, expertise, access to finance and access to networks to ensure that participants will have high growth start-ups. We will take a personal development approach using mentors, women only networks and masterclasses to ensure that the participants have all the necessary skills and confidence to run successful social businesses. We will provide access to experts in finance, leadership, new markets, marketing, social entrepreneurship and social enterprise. The programme will be delivered face to face and online with the aim of meeting the personal needs of the participant. The activity will be underpinned by a monthly network meeting to encourage confidence building and entrepreneurship with the added benefit of inter-trading opportunities and peer to peer support. Personal mentors will support this group of women to fast track their social enterprises. The women will receive 12 months intensive support to create social businesses that impact on inner city Birmingham.
