Brand for Growth 2023

Applications open 11th July 2023 - 25th August 2023

Brand for Growth offers charities and social enterprises the opportunity to invest in their brand in a changing world. Successful applicants will embark on a bespoke rebranding exercise to align and strengthen the organisation for a bright future. This comprises consultancy, design and rollout phases resulting in a revitalised brand outlook, revised visual identity and a starter pack of brand resources.  The programme is for social enterprises in Scotland with high growth and impact potential who can demonstrate that they would benefit significantly from a high level branding exercise they may otherwise struggle to resource. 

This programme is funded through re-invested profit made by Bold Studio during the previous year and is aided by sponsorship from the Scottish Government (as part of their 3 year Social Enterprise Action Plan) and private sponsors with an interest in the third sector. This year there are 3 places available on the programme.

It is a competitive programme aimed at organisations with strong growth and high impact potential who can bring something to the table themselves and will ensure the rollout is effective. The programme is being delivered by Bold Studio, part of the Community Enterprise family. Applicants need to set out how a strong and strategic brand would impact on their business and how it would build capacity. To apply complete the application form below:
