Social Enterprise Day 2019
Thursday 21st November
Part of Global Entrepreneurship Week
Social enterprises are businesses that are changing the world for the better. They aim to make profit - but it's what they do with their profit that sets them apart - reinvesting, donating or creating some positive social change.
Could social enterprise be for you? We're holding a learning session on 19th November in Strathearn Artspace when you can hear more about how the social enterprise way of business might help you to achieve your goals, and how you go about it.
Starting Up? Trading? Growing?
GrowBiz provides a community-based enterprise support service across rural Perth and Kinross.
Covering Eastern and Highland Perthshire, Strathearn and Kinross-shire, we provide support to anyone who is considering becoming self-employed, or growing an existing small business or social enterprise. This is regardless of age or experience – we work with a wide range of people from all backgrounds and sectors.
Services are free and confidential, and include 1-1 meetings, peer support, learning sessions, mentoring, training and networking opportunities.
We’ve worked with more than 700 rural businesses in the last two years, helping them to connect and collaborate.
Our vision is to make Perth and Kinross the most entrepreneurial rural economy in Scotland.
Setting up your own business can be a daunting prospect: there is so much to find out about, so much to do and what about the days you wonder why you thought this would be a good idea? That's where GrowBiz can help!
