Big Issue Invest makes Natwest’s list of top 100 social enterprises in the UK

We are delighted to announce that Big Issue Invest, along with many of our clients, has been listed in Natwest’s top SE100 list.

The annual Natwest SE100 recognises and celebrates emerging and established social enterprises across the UK. It is always a pleasure to see outstanding social enterprises making a positive contribution to social change being acknowledged.  The list is always filled with outstanding organisations of high calibre.

Big Issue Invest CEO, Danyal Sattar says: “When we heard about making the NatWest SE100 it lifted the spirits of the whole team.  I know though, they are prouder to see some of the organisations we’ve supported making the list.  It’s good to see.”

We’re joined on Pioneer’s Post’s list this year by many of the amazing social enterprises we have invested in, ranging from early stage innovators to firmly established enterprises. Organisations across all our funds have been recognised.

During these difficult times and challenges facing many social enterprises, this is welcome news.

Congratulations go to Change Please,From Babies with Love, Goldfinger Factory, Hatch Enterprise, Invisible Cities, London Early Year Foundation, The Skills Mill,We Make Places and St Helena’s Hospice, Projekt 42, Asperger’s East Anglia.
