What do we offer?
Social Investment - tailoring investable propositions and pitching to suitable investors
We want to change the conversation about nature. We work to stop natural asset spend being seen as an expense. Instead, it should be seen as an investment, as we receive multiple benefits that far outweigh this spend (pollination, climate regulation, clean water, health and wellbeing to name a few).
UnLtd is the leading provider of support to social entrepreneurs in the UK and offers the largest such network in the world. UnLtd offers a complete package of resources; from awards of funding to ongoing advice, networking and practical support.
