SCVO is hosting a Sandwell-focused event called ‘Creating impact through enterprise’ on Wednesday 15 November. It is part of this year’s Social Economy Drive from the West Midlands Combined Authority.
The Social Economy Drive includes a whole week of showcase events across the West Midlands. It celebrates the achievements and potential of the social economy in Sandwell, Birmingham, Coventry, Dudley, Solihull, Walsall and Wolverhampton.
SCVO’s ‘Creating impact through enterprise’ event explores the opportunities that social enterprises offer the local community. It focuses on what can make a difference in Sandwell, specifically what support is available to nurture, enable and resource new initiatives in the borough.
The event is aimed at budding entrepreneurs, new or fledgling social enterprises as well as established charities and not-for-profits that want to expand and develop their services through trading.
The event will cover:
- An introduction to social enterprise and what the social economy landscape looks like across Sandwell and the West Midlands region
- How to access local incubator support for new enterprises – to benefit from coaching or to secure funds and resources to pump-prime your organisation or project
- Ways in which established organisations can look to diversify their funding through traded services, highlighting examples of sustainable activity in Sandwell.
There will also be an opportunity to network with other delegates and meet support providers face-to-face.
