Description

The January meeting will take place on Tuesday January 16th, at Occombe Farm in Paignton.

GUEST ORGANISATION: Our guest organisation this month is Jay Tompt talking about 'The Local Spark' a Torbay Community Supported Enterprise Project

The Local Spark - Torbay Community Supported Enterprise is a new initiative in its earliest stages of formation. It seeks be a catalyst for rallying community support for new and existing local enteprises that benefit the community in some way - think green, ethical, social, resilience-building. It draws its inspiration from citizen-led models underway in other places, such as the experience in Totnes. The Totnes REconomy Project has followed an approach that seeks to nurture a for-benefit entrepreneurial culture, mobilise local capital, and build an 'enterprising ecosystem' that supports new actors, models, and relationships. Our initial ideas for the Local Spark include pop-up incubators, hackathons, and local entrepreneur forums. We're developing partnerships with the Torbay Community Development Trust and the Torbay Social Enterprise Network.
