Are you young and ready for a challenge? Apply to Beyond the Finish Line!

Beyond the Finish Line, a new programme by Firstport and Ice Cream Architecture, challenges young people to revitalise their local areas using social enterprise ideas.

 

 

Beyond the Finish Line (BTFL) uses the momentum of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and young people’s imagination to regenerate local areas.

Through this ambitious programme, budding social entrepreneurs will set up 10 social businesses in response to challenges identified by the people of Glasgow, breathing new life to empty spaces around the city. The best emerging ideas will be given one to one business support, mentoring from an industry expert, free workspace within Glasgow City centre, funding of up to £2014 and their own space to test their ideas.

The Challenge Briefs are now out, giving young people an insight into local area challenges and motivating them to come up with ideas to solve them. 

We are calling to action all creatives and innovators between 16-30 to find solutions that have a positive impact within the community, and to take a journey with us to develop this idea into a social enterprise. 

Find out more about Beyond the Finish Line on the website and apply with your idea before the 21st February to secure yourself  a place in the Weekend Launch event.
