Are you motivated by the desire to build a better future? Do you have an idea, a passion or a project that keeps you up at night? Could this idea help people or the planet?

Do you want to find out if your idea could grow into a sustainable business - a business that generates profit and makes a difference locally or globally?

If it’s yes to any of these, or you are just curious about starting your own social enterprise, join us at this FREE two-day Start-up event for the chance to find out more and bring your ideas to life!

What’s involved...

  • Explore and test your idea with like-minded individuals, and build your network
  • Receive inspiration, insights and top tips from social enterprise experts and speakers
  • Gain new skills and learn the basics of how to set up a sustainable purpose-led business

By the end of the event you’ll have developed a Business Model Canvas and have clear next steps for taking your ideas forward.

Open to individuals based in Gloucestershire, who are not yet registered or trading.
