Event description

Description

A social enterprise is like any other business in that it works to deliver goods and services to make a profit. The difference is that they are driven by their social and environmental purposes and any profit made is reinvested towards achieving these purposes. Social enterprises can allow you to start a business while making a difference in society.

Enterprise SU alongside the Faculty of AHSS are hosting an insight in social enterprise on 21 March.

At the event you can find out more about:

-What social enterprises are

-Why people set them up

-How they are a sustainable business model.

The event will be hosted by Colin Jess, Director of Social Enterprise NI.

There will be a range of social enterprises from Northern Ireland in attendance, including Outside In, Madlug, Mugshot and Training For Women Network, to share their business journey and inspire you to start up.

You will get the chance to:

-Generate ideas to solve some of the world's problems

-Get guidance and advice to set up your own social enterprise.

-Speak to local social enterprise founders and organisations that can help you set up.

Open to all QUB students from any discipline.

Food and refreshments will be provided.

Any questions get in touch with enterprisesu@qub.ac.uk.
