Brevio is a social enterprise Ltd company, and we’re B-Corp pending, meaning we are deeply committed to having a positive impact on people, society – and we continually invest in research and development that will further help the sector.
Brevio was founded and is funded by highly accomplished philanthropist Marcelle Speller, who was awarded an OBE for her work in the voluntary sector.
We are independent, which means we are impartial and can fairly meet the needs of both funder and applicants.
Brevio’s solution has been co-created with major UK funders, as well as charities big and small. Right from the beginning, we have always sought feedback from Third Sector organisations to guide Brevio’s development. This collaborative approach to building Brevio’s platform creates a sustainable solution that works for you.
The University of Bath have been a great supporter of Brevio, and right from the start have provided academic rigor to Brevio’s research and development. We now have three academics from the University of Bath on Brevio’s board of directors. The board consists world leading experts spanning technology, academia, government and blue chip organisations.
