    Goals / Remit

    Rethink Ireland provides cash grants and business support to the social innovations who can make a real difference. Our task is to fuel these innovations with the knowledge and the advice they’ll need to succeed on a nationally impactful scale.

    We’re here to open doors and give them access to the networks and connections who can help them spread their ideas throughout Ireland. We nurture communities of like-minded organisations who come together to share thoughts and approaches.

    Based in Galway, Cork and Dublin, our staff are strategically located to hold events, seminars and Accelerator programmes to support social innovations across the country.

    OUR VISION
    Our vision is an Ireland which is more just, equal and sustainable because of social innovation.

    OUR MISSION
    Our mission is to support the best social innovations so that they can grow and maximise their impact across Ireland.
