BQ launches The UK Social Entrepreneur Index to recognise social entrepreneurs across the UK

January 29, 2019

A great marketing opportunity for your social enterprise. BQ, a magazine that recognise and inspire entrepreneurship across the UK, has launched a new campaign to celebrate social entrepreneurs. The UK Social Entrepreneur Index (sponsored by UBS) is designed to highlight those entrepreneurs that are doing things a little bit differently to make our world a better place.

BQ’s campaign aims to celebrate the individuals behind some of the most passionate, driven and innovative socially-centred businesses, telling their story and providing inspiration to thousands of others in the process.

Throughout the campaign a small number of UK ambassadors will help promote social entrepreneurship and work with BQ through the process to identify future role models.

BQ’s Bryan Hoare explained: 

Our campaign will be people focused – looking at what drives the entrepreneurs behind these businesses and how what they do makes an impact.

BQ has already appointed its first two social ambassadors: Alan Mahon, founder of fast-growing Scottish social enterprise Brewgooder, that is turning craft beer into clean drinking water and Rosie Ginday, Founder of Miss Macaroon that donates profits from its baking business to support employment training opportunities for young people.

Alan explained:

Social entrepreneurship is an increasingly attractive and credible career path for young people looking to make their mark on the world, and improve it for others. By showcasing the stories and achievements of successful social entrepreneurs I hope the UK Social Entrepreneur Index acts as a continued source of inspiration for the next generation to achieve even greater things and that’s why it has my backing.

BQ are accepting nominations until the 15th of March.

This campaign could be a great way for your social enterprise to feature in a national magazine, sharing the amazing work you do with a wider audience, and you can nominate yourself! For more information, on the campaign and how it can help celebrate your business please follow the link here.
