One Planet Ventures

One Planet Ventures aims to create sustainable enterprises and projects. We are a Brixton based social enterprise that develops and supports entrepreneurs and communities in making a positive environmental, social and economic impact. Due to this strong ethos, the projects that we undertake fit into one of two strands;

Strand (a) Entrepreneurship - It is our aim to nurture entrepreneurs to realise the potential of an idea through an eco-system of support. This is realised through Hatch, our Youth Enterprise Accelerator.

Strand (b) The Environment – To promote environmental sustainability, One Planet Ventures strives to encourage and facilitate access, conservation and enjoyment of local green spaces.

Through Hatch we empower and enable young adults aged 18 – 30 to go into self-employment or start their own budding commercial, environmental or social enterprise. We do this by providing an eco-system of support including workshops, workspace (coworking, making, retail spaces) and facilitating a dedicated back-office and mentoring programme.

For 12-weeks we provide:

  • Weekly workshops, giving you the skills and expertise to run your business or social enterprise
  • Specialist 1-on-1 support on everything from finance and fundraising to social media
  • Personalized mentoring, helping you to increase your networks and provide a strategic sounding board for your enterprise
  • Access to subsidised office, retail or ‘making space’ (if needed)
  • Invitations to networking events to reach new audiences and grow your professional network
  • The opportunity to pitch to investors and funders at the end of the programme (on their Demo Day)
