Event description

Description

More South West startups are creating business models focused on impact – tackling social or environmental challenges.

The same innovative spark that drives economic growth is now making a more inclusive, sustainable economy a reality: creating new market opportunities in housing, resource use, technology, creative industries and employment.

In this event we will explore:

  • How businesses & investors can identify, support and benefit from innovative business ideas and future investment opportunities
  • As the social & ethical investment space broadens, what can be learned from the experience of national and regional investment funds

Financing Inclusive Growth is a national event with a regional focus - for any investor, intermediary, enterprise or stakeholder interested in this field.

In it, we will:

  • Ask ‘what next’ for social & ethical investment with a panel of investors, experts and innovators
  • Brief you on the latest developments in the regional social investment sector through new independent research
  • Learn from deals that chart a more diverse market and investment landscape
  • Explore how we can close the gap between business need and resources available

Speakers:

The event will be opened by Dimo Dimov, Professor of Innovation & Entrepreneurship at the University of Bath.

Followed by panel discussion. Networking preceded by ‘open space’ for anyone attending to briefly introduce their work or respond to points raised.

Refreshments provided - let us know if you have any specific dietary requirements.

This event is brought to you by the Social Enterprise & Innovation Programme - EU ERDF Funded, Managed by University of Bath, and in close association with key delivery partners:
