Event description

Description

Currently, with the knock on effect of government cuts and lack of resources being filtered to the most vulnerable, our communities need us more than ever!

If you want to make a difference and start a business, project or organisation to tackle a social issue, but have been stalling because you’re overwhelmed with where to start and how to make it financially sustainable, whilst still making an impact. Or, if you have you already started an initiative, but are now stuck with fundraising or scaling your impact further, join us on 3rd June where we will be discussing how to make a scalable and sustainable impact in either a local or international community.

We will hear from 2 phenomenal young founders, who will be sharing practical information covering:

- The difference in structures between a charity and social enterprise

- Ways that you can pilot your idea before diving straight in

- Tips for getting together your power team

- Creative ways of fundraising and creating a revenue structure

- How you can scale your impact

Plus an opportunity for Q&A and an open floor discussion around overcoming anxiety and channeling your past experiences to pursue your idea.

Our 2 fantastic charity and social enterprise founders who will be sharing the ins and outs are:
