Geographical remit: 


Our vision is to become the global leader in fostering communities in cities where people thrive. To achieve this, we create opportunities for people to tackle the toughest challenges that cities face together.

We believe in supporting changemakers that are tackling the toughest challenges in cities head-on. Global impact starts with local action, led by pioneering changemakers. We seek to identify and invest in these people to amplify their success, thus creating a ripple effect of social change.

We also believe that people can only flourish in a community if they receive equal opportunities to lead a healthy and fulfilling life. By empowering communities​, we support people who are otherwise excluded from opportunity, due to any disadvantage that they face. 

Our programmes have already supported social ventures which have collectively impacted 700,000 people across the globe.


The Collective Accelerators support entrepreneurs by providing them with leading resources, personal mentorship, a network of supporters and a community to call home. The Collective Global Accelerator, a 4-week residential programme at The Collective Old Oak, has supported 20 entrepreneurs worldwide in their journey of impacting more than 700k people annually.

Our vision is to create a global network of accelerators with local hubs in cities worldwide. The Collective London Accelerator will be the first hub in London, and will focus on supporting entrepreneurs in London and the UK.

The Collective Grants programme works with local charities, community groups, authorities and individuals to identify the most pressing issues in different neighbourhoods, across our cause areas: Economic Opportunity, Social Integration, Health and Wellbeing and Environmental Sustainability.

The Collective Rehousing Initiative provides housing to people who are at risk of becoming structurally homeless, in partnership with Crisis. The programme gives the foundation and opportunities the supported individuals need to get back on their feet, with a holistic approach of providing a stable living situation, a supportive community of people to build meaningful connections with, a housing coach, an employment coach, mental health support, and social activities.
