BHSEN workshops and training are highly practical, enabling you to apply learning directly to your social enterprise or social enterprise idea. You also have the option to book a 1-2-1 session with the workshop facilitator one month after the event to support you to implement what you have learnt. Studies of social enterprises repeatedly show that the biggest barriers to social enterprise growth is generating income, finance and cash flow. This event is the first in a series of workshops focused on finance and funding to support our city’s social entrepreneurs.
Funding and Finance – Understanding the Spectrum
Whether you are a startup developing an income model for the first time or an established social enterprise looking to diversify into new income streams, this half day workshop will enable you to explore the full income spectrum of opportunities available to your social enterprise. You will use tools to make informed decisions about what income streams best suit your social enterprise, and be armed with the resources you need to make it happen.
Participants also have the option to book a 1-2-1 follow up session with the workshop facilitator one month after the workshop (additional cost of 1-2-1 is £10, 4 places available on a first come first served basis).
