Description

Social Enterprise Start Up Discovery Workshop - Day Two.



More and more people are starting businesses with a social purpose at its core. It isn't always about making more and more money, but profit is still important, so you can invest in your social purpose.

This workshop is day two of a two-day session that will help you to understand Social Enterprise, what it is, what it means and how you can start one. The workshops will also look at how you manage the business, covering things like finance, marketing and sales.

Expertly delivered by Voluntary Action Arun and Chichester and the University of Chichester, this 2-day discovery session always proves to be a useful introduction to making your social enterprise idea happen.

Make sure you book now to avoid missing out - and make sure you book both days!

This is a fully funded workshop - you do not need to pay anything to attend, but we do ask you to make sure you can attend before booking and taking away a place from someone who may really need it. Many thanks.

Tea and coffee provided.
