Description


Social Enterprise Exchange - Accelerate Workshop

Social Enterprise Exchange is a new initiative providing a comprehensive programme of support to social enterprises across the Sheffield City Region to promote social entrepreneurship and contribute toward job creation, growth and social inclusion.

After successful workshops in Sheffield, Chesterfield, Rotherham & Doncaster, we are now coming to Barnsley. This two day workshop is an opportunity to work with accredited specialist advisers and enterprise coaches to develop existing enterprise ideas and recommend actions to improve the business case and develop an action plan. It provides a platform to find out more about Social Enterprise Exchange, to discuss the challenges and opportunities for social enterprise, to hear about local social enterprise success stories and to network with peers and social enterprise supporters.
