An Introduction to Social Enterprise
November 21, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm
Are you toying with the idea of setting up a social enterprise or are you in the early stages of doing so?
If you want to create social change and you have an idea for how to do it, come along for an invaluable introduction to social enterprise including how to secure funding and support from UnLtd, the leading provider of support to social entrepreneurs in the UK.
No matter what stage of your ’social enterprise journey’ – whether you want to start-up or scale up, we’ll help you to flesh out tangible next steps. We will also introduce practical tools to help you plan and develop your social enterprise.
In the spirit of Edventure, everyone makes the day, and as participants, you will be invited to contribute your own experiences and ideas.
We also offer ongoing support and mentoring after the workshop, together with membership to the Edventure Frome Start-Up Cafe where you can meet up again and share how you’re getting on. It’s nice to know that you are not alone on this journey!
