The Social Founder Network connects, supports and promotes founders in the charity and social enterprise sectors.
We provide a mix of practical and personal support, connections, stories, information and inspiration.
We share stories across the media and other stakeholders, to inform and inspire wider audiences.
We connect and support Social Founders
Together we can grow our impact
We are a global network of founders across the charity, social enterprise, NGO, non-profit and community sectors.
We support, resource and connect with each other online and face to face to grow our skills and impact, and to inspire current and future social founders.
"The team helped Street Storage build a skeleton Strategy Plan for the coming 5 years, looking at different parts of the organisation, and providing in depth, useful and appropriate advice to a small charity like ours.
I am much less overwhelmed by Strategic Planning as a result!
A big thank you must go to the Social Founder Network for facilitating this and for always being an advocate for what we do. We are so grateful!”
Rachel Woolf, Founder & Director, Street Storage charity.

We share founder stories with wider audiences
Stories are a driver for social change
We tell the stories of social founders, providing information and inspiration to other founders, the media and wider audiences.
Listen to 'Social Founder Stories', our inspirational podcasts with social founders to hear what makes social founders tick, how they create impact, scale their organisation, what they struggle with, and how they overcome their challenges.
Be inspired by their drive, creativity, skills and resilience, as well as their impact stories.
Check out our Founder Gallery to read about, and connect with, just a few of our network, and some of those that came before us.
Contact us if you are a social founder with a story to share, or know of a founder who has inspired you.

We run networking events for Social Founders
We bring social founders together to share, learn, inspire, support and connect.
Our most recent event was in Hackney, East London, our first in-person gathering of Hackney-based social founders, on 15th June.
We've held events in London, Tokyo, New Delhi, Madrid, Rome, Colombo.
"I came to your event at the Good Market in Colombo and was delighted to connect with so many social founders I had never met before. It was fascinating and helpful, we had much in common, and much to share. And we'll continue to stay in touch with each other to build our impact across Sri Lanka's diverse communities. Thank you!"
