What is Social Enterprise?

As Scotland works towards being a fairer society, social enterprises are increasingly becoming the business model of choice. Join our What is Social Enterprise? workshop to find out if your idea fits the social enterprise mould.

In this workshop you’ll learn the basic building blocks of social enterprise and hear about some of Scotland’s best social enterprise successes. So if you’re new to social enterprise, or not sure whether your idea would fit with social enterprise criteria, then this workshop is for you.

Designed to motivate and excite social enterprise startups the session is designed to support your first steps in social enterprise. Once completed, you’ll be able to progress on to our four core social enterprise workshops, or move on to the next phase with our Stepping Stones workshop.

For you if:

  • You are interested in starting a business with a social and/or environmental purpose
  • You are interested in social enterprise and want to learn more
  • You have a business idea and aren’t sure if it’s a good fit for social enterprise
