Eligibility Check33%

The first stage in the application process will be an eligibility check.

Please complete an expression of interest via the form on our Submit an Expression of Interest page. If you have a business plan, please attach your business plan to your submission.

At this stage we will check that your organisation and project are eligible for our fund. You can see our investment criteria on our Eligibility page.


The second stage in the application process will be a call or meeting with PICNIC’s investment team.

Once we have assessed your expression of interest, we should be in a position to understand if your organisation fits our investment criteria. We will then follow up to schedule a call or meeting with you to explore your proposal, organisation and ambitions in more depth to understand if an investment might be suitable.


The final stage in the process will be to prepare and submit a detailed investment application.

We will invite successful candidates to make a formal investment application, which will be presented to our investment committee for consideration.

The application will require us to undertake due diligence, and collect all the information and documentation needed to properly assess the financial strength of your organisation, governance, strategy, social purpose, business plan, reporting and legal structure. All this information is consolidated into your application form; don’t worry we’ll be helping you all the way.

If you need support in any of these areas to become “investment ready”, we are a Reach Fund Access Point so we can direct you to the support you need to become ready for an investment from PICNIC.
