TERN founded UP Collective in 2017 alongside Ben & Jerry's.  TERN delivers UP Collective in London. TERN also manages the international collaboration around UP Collective with  close collaborators  Delitelabs, PLACE and Caritas. TERN also co-leads on international fundraising and innovation projects for UP Collective.

Ben & Jerry's and TERN are proud to have founded UP Collective in 2017, but even prouder of the wonderful partners who have since joined us in the UP Collective family. Today, UP Collective is more inviting than ever and welcomes other businesses and organisations to join the UP Collective partner group to make the programme better than ever for the next generation & alumni newcomer entrepreneurs.



Help unlock our vision of supporting 1000 newcomer entrepreneurs.


There’s so much more we can do to support and empower refugees when we work together.

The UP Collective always looks to partner with new organisations to make UP Collective better and better, and to increase its reach and impact. Partners can come on board to:

  • hire or contract participants and graduates; 

  • scouting graduates and their business for their incubator programme and startup finance;

  • delivering up the UP Collective programme in a new city;

  • funding UP Collective to grow and go to new cities and communities. 

Meet the UP Collective partnerships team for an exploratory call.
