Description

We're delighted to invite you to join our second UnLtd learning journey in Dundee. This is a rare opportunity to experience first-hand the impact other social entrepreneurs are having in their resilient communities.

On Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th Sept 2019, Kirsty Thomson, founder of community co-working space The Circle, and a group of local residents, will welcome a select group of UnLtd social entrepreneurs to their home town of Dundee on the east coast of Scotland.

Sharing the lessons she has learnt during her journey to date as a social entrepreneur, Kirsty will share advice on how to acquire a building to create a community hub, how to build a financially sustainable social venture and methods on leadership.

Join us in September for 2 days of ideas, energy and fresh approaches to making a difference in your area. This will also be a great opportunity to meet and mingle with social entrepreneurs from across the UK who are on the same journey as you.

Places on this experience are limited and are available on a first come, first served basis.

UnLtd via Postcode Innovation Trust will cover all reasonable travel, accommodation and meal expenses.

We strongly advise you take out travel insurance. Should you be unable to attend at short notice, UnLtd cannot cover costs for cancellation.

If you would like to take part in this unique experience, please contact:
