A fantastic resource for finding all the best grants, loans, and accelerator opportunities for impact businesses. Through their support, I've unlocked schemes like Coralus, which offers interest-free long-term loans, and the Cartier Women's Initiative.

Considered Capital is the #1 best resource for social impact entrepreneurs who need to fundraise. I won the Innovate UK Unlocking Potential Award worth £50,000 and the Cartier Women's Initiative, both of which I found through Considered Capital. Both these awards have been game-changing for my business.

This has already paid for itself x3 in funding and partnership opportunities. We learned about and applied for the Tata Varsity Pitch through Considered Capital, which brought in £15,000 and a £2,500 grant from SomeFund.

This is such a great idea. Lack of access to funding often starts with a lack of knowledge of where to find it. A database like this has such huge potential to help so many businesses. Love it.

What Esme does is just amazing. She's the go-to resource I refer almost all my entrepreneurs to. So many amazing resources for founders looking for alternative, slower capital.
