Event description
“Starting, growing and scaling a social enterprise: business models and financial strategies for Social Entrepreneurs”

About this Event

Changing the world through social enterprise involved building a sustainable business! This session will explore some of the core elements of that.

Firstly, we'll dive into understanding business models, including using the Business Model Canvas (BMC) framework of building blocks to help you to visualise different elements of your social venture.

This thinking is essential for social entrepreneurs as much as regular entrepreneurs. In the workshop we will use two separate social enterprise examples to illustrate how to apply BMC to social ventures, and you will leave with a good understanding of how this valuable tool can help you to strengthen your own venture and sustainably create the impact you are aiming for.

Then we'll move on to thinking about how to finance your venture. What are social investors looking for? Where can you get money to scale your social venture? How do you get yourself set up to increase your chances of security finance?

This session will talk through some of the funding strategies and options which will help get you through the early stages and enable you to venture and your impact.

This event will be followed by a networking reception for workshop participants and other invited guests.
