Apply now for the "Social Tech Seed" - open grant - funding programme!

Social Tech Seed is now open for Stage 1 applications until 14 April 2016 


Social Tech Seed is an open grant-funding programme that offers entrepreneurial organisations early-stage investment to develop innovative projects harnessing the power of the internet and digital technologies to deliver significant social change. The programme supports projects tackling pressing social challenges such as the environment and sustainability, education, employment and healthcare. Social Tech Seed will provide funding and support to help you demonstrate the social, user and financial value of your existing digital prototype. 


Social Tech Seed highlights: Social Tech Seed provides funding and support that enables entrepreneurial organisations with a basic, but functional, digital prototype to develop it into a more robust product or service and demonstrate its value to intended users and other stakeholders. If your application is successful, you can expect to receive:

  • Grant funding, typically between £15,000 and £50,000 for a project of 9-12 months’ duration
  • A support package including mentoring, marketing & comms advice and networking opportunities
  • Access to a discretionary fund of up to £5,000 should you need access to specific expertise to support your early-stage development


Unlike many other investors, Nominet Trust:

  • Does not ask for an equity stake, nor requests loan repayments
  • Allows successful ventures to retain any IP developed with our funding
