E3M and BWB present: Finance for Social Enterprise Growth

This one-day seminar focuses on the needs and interests of established social businesses (including: social enterprises, trading charities and public service mutuals) seeking finance to grow their operations and impact.

Dates & Times

November 20, 2013 @ 12:00 am

Uniquely starting from the perspective of the social business, this event cuts through the hype about social investment and provides a practical overview of the different financial models that can finance growth. It explores a range of debt and equity solutions that relate to different levels of risk, with a series of presentations from experts and with practical case studies.

The seminar will help participants assess how different financial tools can be used to raise investment to support growth including: working capital, debt finance on suitable terms for asset acquisition; and equity and quasi-equity to support PBR-contracts; and to manage and share risk to improve effectiveness. Participants will have the chance to ask questions and network throughout the day.

Who should attend?

Senior staff of social businesses responsible for raising capital (CEOs, Finance Directors, Business Development Directors) and others interested in the growth of social enterprise.
