Finance Masterclass

Social Finance/Social Investment Masterclass

Our 'Social Finance' Toolbox develops on a ‘Learning Circle Process’.

We adopt the PARA (Plan Act Reflect Adapt) process to help empower the delegates to participate and immerse themselves into the masterclasses:

  • Explore legal structures and business models to help position your social enterprise 
  • Develop a plan of action around key questions such as ‘How do we develop a suitable growth programme? How are we going to pitch investors?
  • Explore, acquire and build knowledge around the many key issues posed by the journey to social enterprise investment readiness
  • Open up the opportunity to share the experiences of enterprises at different stages of their growth trajectory, including start-ups
  • Explore the different sources of finance and investors available to Social Enterprises at different stages of their development trajectory.
