Spring Crowdbacker 2022: Pledge Your Support

Launching the social ventures of tomorrow

Introducing the five new ventures joining the Year Here venture portfolio: Soda, Mosaic, Climate Minded, Kãlã and Just Once. These startups are tackling some of the most pressing social and environmental issues faced by the UK today. Help give them their best shot at impact by pledging your support.



  • Soda empowers young adults who are chronically ill and disabled to work with public services and commercial organisations to design a more inclusive, accessible world – and to get paid for it.
  • Mosaic aims to catalyse rewilding and make it more accessible. Adopt a plot and let us take you on a journey into wildness.
  • Climate Minded aims to bridge the climate literacy inequality gap and get young people from ethnic minorities and low-income backgrounds more involved so they don’t miss out on the opportunities the green economy will bring in the future
  • Kālā is on a mission to democratise access to venture and prove you can make money and have a positive impact. Kālā brings transparency and human touch to today’s world of investing, letting you invest in things you care about.
  • Just Once is a paperless carers assessment that integrates the registration process of other existing sources of help. Unpaid carers register Just Once and have access to all the services available to support them.
