Ignite Social Enterprise is the UK’s first impact investment fund with a focus on energy. They believe that energy entrepreneurs have a vital role to play in building a better society and they are here to help them achieve their potential.
They invest people and money into emerging and mature organisations that have a clear vision of how they benefit society. By focusing on energy, they are driving innovation at every point of the energy chain – from sourcing and generation through to supply, service and saving energy. And by investing in social enterprises they are making a positive impact on employment, income, housing and local communities.
As well as providing capital, they work to understand the specific needs of each of their investments and help them grow through mentorship, networking and the skilled support of Centrica employees.
