What is a social enterprise? This interactive session will introduce you to the world of social enterprise. The workshop will focus on both theory and practice; exploring how now, more than ever, social enterprises can thrive both in the UK and internationally. Using case studies to explore what it means to be a social enterprise and how and why you should consider it, we will equip you with the knowledge you need to turn your concept into a reality. Please bring an idea if you have one, or just a passion to create one.
The session will be Led by Peter Ptashko
