We believe that another economy is possible.
In the run up to our main event on 5th May, we're holding this more informal Evening Taster Session as a chance to get together and talk with us us before the big bash. You can also meet with others in the same position and talk to advisers who can help to explore, test and develop your ideas.
There’ll be advice on
- Funding and finance.
- Practical know-how to get ideas off the ground.
- Local resources and support
This Taster Evening will also give you a feel of how Bootstrap will work, how other businesses and the community can support you and even how you could pitch your idea to the “Community of Dragons” at the Big Bootstrap event at Hebden Bridge Town Hall on 5th May.
At this Big Bootstrap event; as well as information and inspiration about solidarity economics and new and innovative enterprise ideas; we’ll run a lively “Community of Dragons” session. This will be a chance for start-up or growing social enterprises to pitch and promote their ideas as well as appealing for support, resources and investment directly to our local community.
