Event description

Description

Social investment is often seen as a London-centric activity. It can be harder for charities and social enterprises outside of the capital to access social investors and gain a better understanding of the financial products available.

LET'S TALK GOOD FINANCE is a hub of regional social investment networks created to provide charities and social enterprises with a local safe space to know more about social investment and better navigate the market.

It offers charities and social enterprises the following opportunities:

  • To speak to charity and social enterprise leaders who have already accessed social investment

  • To meet potential social investors

  • To learn about new social investment initiatives, funds and instruments

  • To be able to ask questions in a safe and non-judgemental space

  • To understand more about when social investment is not suitable or appropriate

Plymouth Social Enterprise Network (PSEN) is delighted to be working with Big Society Capital to host Plymouth's Let's Talk Good Finance event.
