Made Open selected to join UnLtd's Thrive 2020 cohort

We are delighted to announce that we have won a place on UnLtd's Thrive programme - a social accelerator for high-impact and scalable social businesses.

Focused on improving the quality of life for people over 50's, Thrive work with social businesses who have innovative solutions to help people in later life stay happy, independent, fit and healthy. The bespoke programme combines six months of intensive personalised support with the opportunity to access powerful sector connections.

As Roland Singer-Kingsmith, Venture Manager for UnLtd explains:

We are living longer but we are not living better, and the discrepancy in healthy life expectancy can be as much as 20 years of healthy life. By providing products and services that meet the needs and aspirations of people in later life, social businesses can significantly improve the experience of later life.

Roland Singer-Kingsmith, Venture Manager, Unltd

Whilst our platform offers value to a variety of markets and audiences, it is already demonstrating how it can  support the challenges associated with ageing. Platforms like Torbay Together and Can Do Bristol, for example, help people to connect with their community and provide a place to exchange skills and time with neighbours.

Speaking about being awarded one of the twelve available places on Thrive, Robert explains:

Social values are a core part of our business. We want to help communities, organisations or whole sectors to create social change. Whilst we've managed to fund the development of our platform through sales, we're in a position now where we're ready to focus on growth. Unltd will help us to put some structure around this.

This Thrive programme cohort began in January 2020. Click here to see all the companies selected in this years cohort.
