We worked with UnLtd to support them develop and implement a business model for scaling up their successful social enterprise model through a form of social franchising.

Starting with the highly successful Unltd model for supporting social entrepreneurs, we implemented a programme to support Unltd capture the key elements of their model, understand its success, and begin to develop an approach that will enable Unltd to massively scale up their work by working through other organisations. The challenges were many from understanding how current processes and systems could be made available to developing the first materials for partners organisations to use and leading on the involvement of the first tranche of partner organisations. Perhaps most challenging of all was the process of understanding the ‘Unltd way’, working with Unltd’s development managers to capture the essence of what they do intuitively to identify, support and encourage the talents of new community entrepreneurs.
