nest is also the home of Social Startup, a development programme for anyone looking to develop a sustainable social venture.

Once a year, we run this 5-week programme where students, graduates and members of the public can develop social enterprises that aim to make a difference in society and make money at the same time. More information and dates for the workshops can be found on our Social Startup page.
