"Every day, in every community across Ireland, we see people stepping up with innovative solutions to tackle social and environmental problems," Tim Griffiths, CEO of Social Entrepreneurs Ireland, says in a press release.

"We call these people social entrepreneurs, and at Social Entrepreneurs Ireland, we're looking to find and support even more of them in Dublin."

The Irish nonprofit is now accepting applications for its 2024 Impact Program, which aims to "support social entrepreneurs to develop and lean on strengths such as planning, teamwork, collaboration, leadership, and big picture thinking," per the press release.

There are five places up for grabs in the nine-month, $220,000 program, which Griffiths says will "create space for awardees to problem solve,strategise, and learn together as a group, while taking a step back from the day-to-day operations of their business."

There's also individual support, monthly individual support sessions, and a 20-year-strong community of alumni and experts who can offer advice, support, mentorship, and connections, per the press release.

The deadline to apply is Wednesday, April 24.
