If you want to achieve business success, or even the very survival of your social enterprise, it’s absolutely essential that you bring in enough money. That might seem like an obvious statement of fact, but generating enough income to cover costs, pay wages or develop your ideas is actually not always that easy.
Third sector organisations can no longer rely on grant funding, and the emphasis on generating trade is stronger than ever. Scottish social enterprises aim to generate at least half of their income, and the most successful and sustainable social enterprises look to establish consistent and reliable income streams. They do that by selling their services and products to members of the public, other companies, or the public sector.
If you’re ready to invest time and effort into developing your income generation options, Just Enterprise specialists are able to help.
You might have an idea which could work for making more money but need some support to scope it out. Or perhaps you are looking at ways to diversify or expand on the services or products you currently offer. Maybe you just want guidance on how to increase your customer base. Or perhaps you’ve spotted an opportunity to generate more income and need some support to help you make a sound plan.
