Pioneers Post is much more than a magazine. Each year, we draw on our extensive network and deep experience of the trends shaping the impact economy to design and organise workshops, conferences and webinars and training sessions – all aimed at bringing together social entrepreneurs and impact investors to drive progress in building the impact economy. In addition, we organise two major awards schemes for UK-based leaders and organisations: the SE100 and the WISE100. 

A collaborative initiative, first launched in 2010, that recognises and celebrates the leading 100 social enterprises across the UK each year. For the latest and greatest check out our SE100 Collection and check back for updates.

The first ever index to recognise and celebrate inspiring and influential women in social enterprise, impact investment and mission-driven business. To find out the most inspiring and leading social enterprise women, check out our WISE100 Collection. 


We ran a day of marketing and communications workshops for social enterprises in 2017 and in 2019. Catch up with all our storytelling insights in our Good Stories collection.


Our Good Deals + Beyond Good Business conferences brought together social entrepreneurs, mission-driven businesses and impact investors to learn from one another, build networks and “get good deals done”. Read more in our Good Deals collection.


Our WISE UP events included workshops, learning and networking specially curated for the WISE100 network.


In 2019 we were media partner and event manager for The Gathering for Social Investment, an event curated and hosted by The Gathering Steering Group to engage the UK social investment sector. Explore the big questions tackled in our special Gathering collection. We also supported the Connect Fund to produce the 2023 edition of The Gathering.


With our partner the British Council, we recruited and worked with 14 young journalists from six countries, supporting them to report on creative and social enterprise. The DICE Young Storymaker programme kicked off with a week of training, discussion and networking in London, in May 2019. Find out more about our 2019/20 DICE Young Storymakers.

Also with the British Council, we designed and led a week-long training programme for social entrepreneurs and journalists in Ethiopia, ahead of the Social Enterprise World Forum 2019; a week of training for social entrepreneurs and journalists in Sudan in early 2020; and several more online and in-person programmes for young journalists and storytellers in Europe and beyond, focusing on solutions journalism and reporting on the impact economy.
