Event Summary

A one-day seminar organised by Social Business International in partnership with Bayes Wells Braithwaite, University of Northampton, Unity Trust Bank and Baker Tilly, sponsored by Big Society Capital.

This one-day seminar focuses on the needs and interests of established social businesses seeking finance on acceptable terms to grow their operations and impact.

The seminar is designed to equip participants with the practical information and knowledge about financial models that can support successful growth strategies and the relevance of finance being offered by specialist fund managers. It will provide inspiration with stories of what is possible and give some much-needed insight into lessons learned. It will include a unique “reverse dragon’s den” where social enterprise leaders quiz fund managers about the how the products they offer may be of use to social enterprises seeking to grow.

Uniquely starting from the perspective of the social business, this event cuts through the hype about social investment and provides a practical overview of the different financial models that can finance growth. It explores a range of debt and equity solutions that relate to different levels of risk, with a series of presentations from experts and with practical case studies.

Who should attend?

CEOS and senior staff in social enterprises, trading charities, public sector mutuals, as well as those with an interest in social enterprise growth including social investors, advisors, local authorities, Local Enterprise Partnerships, and academic institutions.
