Please note that the venue for this event has changed- it will now take place in Glasgow
iCAN is a new and innovative programme specifically developed to help you increase your confidence and creativity to turn your social enterprise ideas into reality.
The programme runs like this: You start by taking part in exciting and thought provoking workshops together with other like-minded, budding entrepreneurs. During the workshops you will learn about social enterprise and running a business, from finance and business planning, to branding and operations. You then go and experience what starting a social enterprise is really like by taking part in a one week placement in a start up social enterprise. After that, you bring it all together and start developing your own idea, so you can come back as a group and pitch it on the last day of the programme.
iCAN is intensive and you will need to commit about 2 weeks of your life, but we promise you that by the end of the programme you will have increased your business skills, improved your creative thinking to solve every-day business challenges and will be bursting out with confidence and entusiasm to start your career as a social entrepreneur! You can see the full iCAN schedule here.
Travel expenses and lunch provided!
