Made for Good

Deutsche Bank has a long history of championing initiatives that drive positive change in society. For over 25 years the Bank has led the way as a provider of socially-motivated finance; committing over EUR 2.4 billion to address poverty in the developing world through microfinance funds and loan financing. Supporting entrepreneurial ventures that create wider social good is a natural extension of the Bank’s core business to help businesses of every size and purpose to succeed. Deutsche Bank’s global enterprise programme Made for Good draws on its commercial experience of supporting start-ups as well as the insights into the businesses of the future provided by Innovation Labs in Berlin, London and Silicon Valley.

Made for Good supports small and early-stage enterprises that provide innovative solutions to social and environmental needs, help to invigorate local economies and contribute to vibrant and diverse communities. Made for Good provides business advice and support, access to sources of funding and connections to others so they can become commercially viable and investment ready.

Deutsche Bank are proud to support the groundbreaking research conducted in partnership with Thomson Reuters Foundation and UnLtd.

UnLtd

We are UnLtd, the Foundation for Social Entrepreneurs. We want to see a world where people act to make it better. We reach out to find and support passionate, talented, resourceful people who are determined to tackle the key issues facing society. We call these people social entrepreneurs. Since we began in 2002, we, along with our partners, have given out over 13,000 Awards of funding and support to social entrepreneurs to start well and thrive. We’ve developed a vibrant ecosystem of hundreds of supporters in the UK and across the globe. Now, we’re committed to helping social entrepreneurs to become a valued and vibrant part of society. That means using all our experience, insight and innovation to break down the barriers preventing social entrepreneurship from fulfilling its potential to change the world for the better.
