26th March 2019

‘Elevator’ competition will enable social enterprises to scale whilst accelerating solutions to their cause

LONDON – Independent PR and comms agency Eulogy has launched a competition enabling social enterprises and early-stage ventures driven by social purpose to win pro bono support to help move them from start-up to scale up, whilst accelerating solutions to their cause.

Elevator, which launched on 26 March at the PR Week Forum Programmes with Purpose event in London, forms part of the agency’s wider commitment to purposeful business and builds on some of its recent work in this space with the likes of Albert Kennedy Trust, Pride in London and Roche.

Social enterprise businesses are invited to register their organisation, with successful entrants shortlisted to pitch in a Dragon’s Den-style format. The winner will receive pro bono consultancy services to the equivalent of £20,000 over a 6-month period, tailored to its requirements and spanning everything from insights, research and planning through to campaign strategy and programme development.

Susie Dullard, director, said; “We want to help the most pioneering and ambitious social impact businesses at the forefront of addressing some of our biggest societal challenges. Our Elevator programme reflects our own values as an agency and is in response to the resurgence in CSR and purpose-led activity we’re delivering for clients and seeing within the business community. Brands are more cognisant of their obligations and influence they hold in driving positive impact within their communities and wider society, but many businesses still need help to make the first steps.”

Now in its 23rd year, Eulogy is a full-service integrated agency, and delivers over 50 products and services spanning everything from brand, comms, content and channel strategy through to media and influencer engagement, stakeholder relations and employee engagement. It does this through a mix of audio, video, editorial and design-led programmes, for UK and international brands in the UK and in international territories. With its 62 staff, the agency’s stronghold sectors have expanded with specialist teams now in technology; F&B; financial services; automotive; telecoms and health & wellbeing.

In the last 12 months, Eulogy has won an array of UK and international clients, including, Halo Top Creamery, Headspace, Orbitsound, Unidays, Discovery Kids, Oxbotica and Senseon alongside project growth with retained clients including American Express, Renault, Kantar, Getty Images, Jack Daniel’s, Mizkan and the Civil Aviation Authority.
