Social Enterprise Startup Support: Info Day 13th May 2011
Enterprising solutions in challenging economic climate!!
In the current economic climate, with growing numbers of redundancies, unemployed school and university leavers and funding for community projects on the decrease we need to find enterprising solutions for these challenges and get on with it ourselves by creating social enterprises as a wise alternative!
Social Enterprise in East Lothian will be working in partnership with BRAG Enterprises Ltd to offer people in East Lothian a unique opportunity to do something amazing and start up a social enterprise with all the support you will need. Brag Enterprises has successfully delivered the School for Social Entrepreneurs in Fife since 1992 and along with Social Enterprise in East Lothian are offering the “Motivate to Innovate” programme, which is a new and exciting ERDF funded programme offering business start up support for aspiring social entrepreneurs.
This is a tailored programme of support, which will include social enterprise formation, an introduction to the social economy, feasibility, business sustainability and access to £6k grant monies to develop your idea further. This requires commitment and will pay dividends!
