The word Social Enterprise gets thrown backwards and forwards through business circles and networks all the time, but there is sometimes confusion around what a Social Enterprise actually is.
And if you know what it is, then the next question would be, how do you go about setting one up? These questions and so many others will be answered at our ‘Thinking of Starting up a Social Enterprise?’ event on Thursday 14th May brought to you by RBS Inspiring Women in Enterprise with speaker and Social Enterprise Specialist, Janine Hyland.
This event is perfect if you are thinking about starting up a Social Enterprise and want to get more information, but also if you are already running a Social Enterprise as it can be an opportunity to find information you might not already know and meet other women in the same situation.
This event will focus on clarifying what a Social Enterprise actually is, as well as dispelling many of the myths that surround this type of business. Janine will discuss how to create social value within your business and give examples of different legal structures as well as model examples of Social Enterprises and how to sustain your business.
For over 19 years, Janine has worked in the not for profit sector, working hand in glove with social entrepreneurs, SME’s, charities and local authorities. She is a Senior Business Advisor at The Women’s Organisation and has been providing business support to female led Social Enterprises, helping them become sustainable and grow.
This event is brought to The Women’s Organisation with support from RBS Inspiring Women in Enterprise, a project under their Inspiring Enterprise work they complete to encourage a more entrepreneurial culture; ‘From the classroom to the boardroom, we are inspiring enterprise at every stage of the journey.’
RBS say; ‘In the UK, twice as many men as women start a business. We want to change that. We want to enhance the role of women entrepreneurs. RBS has launched Inspiring Women in Enterprise to tackle this issue head on. With access to a support network offering expert advice, together with funding opportunities, we believe more women can be inspired and enabled to succeed in business.’
