Serious Impact – helping Cambridge’s impact entrepreneurs.

We help impact entrepreneurs innovate, start up, grow and scale.


You’ve got a brilliant idea that you believe will make an impact but don’t know how to turn it into a business.

Or you’ve got the business model to create impact and financial sustainability but you need help to launch it.

Or you’ve already got an enterprise that’s delivering both impact and financial sustainability but you’re now looking to scale.


Serious Impact provides a range of free programmes to support and energise entrepreneurs to develop and grow impact ventures. What we do can be accessed through a single day workshop, amplified with an intensive three month long programme of workshops, talks and training, or scaled with 9 months of incubation space and one-on-one mentoring, all supported by the state-of-the-art facilities and the tools you need to remove the roadblocks to taking your enterprise supernova.
