Southampton Football Club is delighted to unveil its brand-new Positive Impact Pledge: the opportunity for one forward-thinking entrepreneur or start-up to kickstart their challenger brand of the future with a £20,000 tax-free grant and expert mentorship.
During such challenging and testing times, the club has identified the Pledge as a chance to help support like-minded businesses with original ideas and power their growth.
Rather than let innovation go to waste, the club wants to harness the creativity of entrepreneurs and start-ups and offer them support to help turn pioneering concepts into reality.
The Pledge will see fledgeling challenger businesses that are dedicated to delivering positive impact submit an initial application detailing how they plan to drive change. Proposals will then be shortlisted and successful applicants will be invited to St Mary’s Stadium to pitch their business plans to senior board members at Southampton Football Club.
In keeping with the club’s wider off-field strategy, the objective is that the club and the winning entrepreneur or start-up, together, can continue to champion innovation.
Small businesses at an early stage of their development and comprising of no more than five people are invited to visit the Positive Impact Pledge webpage to find out more.
