Change for Good: Social Enterprises from UAL Graduates

Tuesday 4 February
6pm - 8.30pm
London College of Communication

Business, profit, entrepreneur, sales…sometimes these seem like negative words that don’t have much to do with creativity. But there is a way that you can be creative, run a business AND do good. Come along to this event, which is being run and sponsored by the UAL Alumni Enterprising Association, and hear from some incredible creative businesses who are selling and having a positive social impact. Find out what it takes to run a social enterprise, what you need to consider, and some of the support available. You’ll leave feeling inspired by our enterprising panel of speakers, meet other like-minded creatives, and learn how to launch or grow your own social enterprise.
