How to set-up a social enterprise

Social enterprise is a way of ‘doing business better’ by creating a business idea that earns enough income to cover the costs of running the organisation so surplus cash can be reinvested into doing more projects for social good.


Our three-day course, ‘How to set-up a social enterprise’ covers the fundamentals of running a successful social enterprise from identifying who will buy your products and services, to defining how your activities will benefit others.


Any social enterprise registered in the past three years is eligible for a further twelve hours of 1-1 business development coaching.
