The Social Incubator Fund has now committed to making grants to four incubators: Wayra UnLtd, Bethnal Green Ventures, Social Incubator North and Hub Launchpad.

In relation to Wayra UnLtd and Bethnal Green Ventures, I refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave her on 12 March 2013, Hansard, column 168W.

Social Incubator North accepts applications from businesses making a positive social or environmental impact in the north of England only. It aims to run a 'Call to the North' campaign to attract an initial cohort of beneficiaries, which will be followed by a co-ordinated mainstream and social marketing campaign. Hub Launchpad is located in London and Birmingham. It actively recruits beneficiaries from across England.
