Big Issue Invest Corporate Social Venturing (CSV), First Ark, Fusion 21, Places for People and the University of Northampton will host ‘Bigger Together’ – Navigate the World of Social Business, a series of events taking place in Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle and Northampton across March.
These events are intended for those who own, manage or play a very hands on role in the running of social businesses and are aimed at bringing social businesses of all stages together. Offering much more than a list of potential finance options, there will be entrepreneurs on hand at the events to talk through their experience of handling investment.
While finance is a vital element to business development, there are many other factors needed to attain success. The events provide an opportunity for those businesses creating a social impact to meet social investment managers, sector specialists and an array of experts from health, education, housing associations, enterprise bodies and the legal field. There will also be the chance to network with other like-minded social entrepreneurs.
The events will take place as follows:
- Manchester – Wednesday, March 4th, 2015, 1.30 – 5.00 PM
- Liverpool – Thursday, March 12th, 2015, 1.30 – 5.00 PM
