Michelle Smith, founder and Managing Director of Mpower People CIC is announced as one of the Future 100 Young Social Entrepreneurs of the Year on Social Enterprise Day during Global Entrepreneurship Week 2011.
Global Entrepreneurship Week is a worldwide movement of entrepreneurial people, with millions unleashing their enterprising talents and turning their ideas into reality.
The Future 100 Awards were first launched in 2008 to recognise and profile young entrepreneurs running businesses, which have a triple bottom line. The definition of a triple bottom line, is a business that addresses people, planet and profit. They have a strong commercial foundation as well as a significant social and environmental impact.
The Future 100 Awards recognises the success of young entrepreneurs aged 18-35 who demonstrate entrepreneurial flair and innovation in progressing a responsible business venture.
Mpower People CIC provides a variety of activities aimed at empowering individuals towards living healthier, more independent lives, through a range of sports and healthy living education programmes and activities or training relating to increasing sustainable employment opportunities, enterprise development or personal development. Initially aimed specifically at those who are from disadvantaged groups, for example NEET (not in education, employment or training) clients, BEM (Black or ethnic minority) members, anyone living with a health condition, or long-term unemployed, etc. but now open to anyone who feels that they can benefit from our services/activities.
