Social Enterprise Information Sessions


Could you be Edinburgh’s next big social entrepreneur?

Do you have a great idea for a business or charity but don’t know how to make it a reality?

If you would like to know more about starting an ethical, sustainable business then come along to one of our information sessions, where staff from Edinburgh Social Enterprise will explain the basics of social enterprise including the different types of help and funding available to get you started. There will also be a short talk from a local social entrepreneur, describing their journey so far!

6:00pm – introductory talk from Kerry Johnson, Edinburgh Social Enterprise
6:15pm – hear a local social entrepreneur’s story
