As Listed in the 2020 NatWest SE100 Index!

Fashion-Enter Ltd, the Fashion Technology Academy's parent company, has just received some fantastic news. It has been recognised as one of the Top 100 social enterprises in the NatWest SE100 Index 2020!

The UK’s most impressive start-up social enterprises have been growing at a staggering rate of 355% over the past year – but this was before the onset of the coronavirus crisis. The figure is revealed as part of a series of announcements around this year’s NatWest SE100 Index, the annual list of the UK’s leading 100 social enterprises, compiled by Pioneers Post in partnership with NatWest Social & Community Capital.

The top 100 list was released on 14th May 2020, after a rigorous process to assess the best performers of the year from almost 300 applicants. Read all about the Index and find the full list in this article.

Fashion-Enter Ltd CEO Jenny Holloway comments: “Thank-you Pioneers Post and NatWest S&CC for recognising our hard work – the team is absolutely delighted with the listing. Everyone seems to think that if you are a social enterprise that the business is basically a good doer and funded. It’s true our social ethics guide the complete strategy for the business but we do not receive funding – we have to run efficiently like any other business and be self sustaining. We experience the highs and lows just like all businesses so this news now is very much appreciated.  A big shout out to everyone in the team that has made this possible. Stay safe and stay well everyone.”

On Wednesday 20th May, there will be another announcement regarding who of the finalists have become 2020’s SE100 Social Business Award winners, so keep an eye on SE100 Collection.
