Let's Talk Good Finance North East - Darlington 24th April 2018
Big Society Capital is working with VONNE and Social Enterprise Acumen to deliver their Let's Talk Good Finance events in the North East. The next event is in Darlington on the afternoon of the 24th April. These events aim to demystify social investment and enable organisations to share their experiences.
This event is the sixth in a series of events aiming to bring together charities, social enterprises and organisations with social investors and intermediary bodies to network, share information and discuss latest issues relating to social finance.
What's In It For Me - Social Enterprises and Charities:
• To increase accessibility to social enterprise and charity leaders who have already accessed social investment
• To meet potential social investors
• To learn about new social investment initiatives, funds and instruments
• To be able to ask questions in a safe and non-judgemental space
• To understand more about when social investment is not suitable or appropriate
The event will include:
Market Updates and Case Studies - Updates from Big Society Capital and local and national social investment organisations
Hear from a Peer - Case studies of organisations who have been through the social investment journey
Hot Topic Half Hour - Find out about what is the new news in this space
Over to you – the networking session that’s all about you and good networking. Come armed with a question, a challenge you need help with, a connection you need to make and with the help of the crowd we will see.
Lunchtime Social Investment Surgeries
Before this meeting Big Society Capital will be holding a social investment surgery between 12.30-2.00pm.
As a wholesale investor they are interested in talking to commissioners, corporates, CEOs or FDs of large turnover social enterprises and charities about your interest in social investment, your capital needs and to hear your innovative ideas around how repayable finance can best create social impact. Meetings will be by appointment only, and to ensure the maximum value from the session a call or discussion before agreeing an appointment will be arranged.
