The Business Wishing Tree CIC (trading as The Wishing Tree) is a Social Enterprise which Aims to create the UK's first Peer-to-Peer business support network based on Gift Economics. Bringing together Granters who have been trading longer than 3 years and startups known as Wishers who have been trading under that period, the events are a business networking and support format like nothing else you've ever experienced.
Member organisations have backgrounds in a variety of specialisms from accountancy and finance, to graphic design and social media. They have agreed to work together to better support startup small businesses in the local areas in which they operate. These organisations all donate time and resources where capacity allows.
All the profits used from the events are either used to further The Wishing Tree's business support projects or are donated to its nominated charities, The Princes Trust and Epilepsy Scotland.
