Exploring the three Cs: Complementarity, Collaboration and Consortia in Start Fund interventions

In 2022, an evaluation of the Start Fund explored ways the flagship programme could become more locally led. Two recommendations were made to Start Network, which required a deeper understanding of the role that members have as intermediaries and in complementary consortiums. This research report focuses on the complementary role of members in Start Fund consortiums. The reports make recommendations for Start Network and members to support Local and National Organisations to have access to funding, decision-making, and organisational strengthening support in consortiums.
