Butterfly in grass

There are a growing number of Community Interest Companies (CIC) and other businesses that exist for a social purpose. Many charities are having to re-invent themselves as social enterprises as grant funding has diminished or disappeared.

What we will cover

The seminar will focus on diversifying revenues and wider sources of funding. We will also explore routes to sustainability and how to build a wider network.

The seminar will end with a panel session with:

  • Rose Marley, CEO, SharpFutures
  • Vanessa Swann MBE, social entrepreneur and coach
  • Simon Groom, Consultant, Innovas
  • Tim Ashcroft, Consultant, Innovas
  • Stewart Coady, Founder RiseUP Europe CIC.

Who should attend

Social enterprises and start up businesses would all benefit from attending.
