Human Lending Library Launches in the West Midlands

iSE is delighted to be working with charity Expert Impact to launch the Human Lending Library Birmingham. Following in the footsteps of London, Manchester and New York, the Human Lending Library connects some of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs to organisations making a positive social or environmental impact.

Through the Human Lending Library, social entrepreneurs looking for business advice can ‘borrow’ an Expert, for free, to help them solve their challenges and scale.

Experts include the founders of Pret-a-MangerJohn FriedaMumsnet and many other leading companies. You can browse all the experts here.

More than 200 charity and social enterprise leaders have used the service to date including Change Please, a coffee company that trains and employs homeless people as baristas; Harry Specters, a luxury chocolate company staffed by people with autism; and OLIO, an app connecting neighbours to combat food waste.

For your application to be successful you must be running a charity or social enterprise that makes a positive impact in one or more of the following areas: education, healthcare, the arts, scientific research, poverty alleviation, the environment.

You are required to state a specific business issue you would like help with. Successful ventures will be passed the concept stage and will be either considering scaling or already in the process of doing so.
