Is this just the Emperor’s new clothes? Charity in disguise, CSR on steroids or austerity via the back door? Don’t businesses have enough to do anyway, why would they bother?
Engine Shed invites you to the fifth in its series of briefings aiming to inform and provoke on topics relevant to strengthening our eocsystem, with a panel of luminaries assessing not only the current state of funding for social enterprise but also how for-profit and not-for-profit enterprises can learn from each other.
A panel session with Q&A, followed by SETsquared Festive networking.
