The not for profit and social enterprise sectors are buzzing with new financial terms: ‘social investment’ ‘social impact bonds’ and ‘investment readiness’. But what do these terms actually mean, and how can social enterprises and not-for-profits access these new forms of income? This workshop at the School for Social Entrepreneurs London will help you to makes sense of social finance.
"Glad I came - will take knowledge back to my organisation, use it and share it"
Martin Williams, The Salvation Army
You will hear from a panel of speakers from different areas of social investment and case studies from both investors and investees will shine a spotlight on specific types of social investment.
During the day we will cover:
- The spectrum of finance available to social organisations and where new forms of finance fit in to this
- Different forms of social finance that are available and who they’re available from
- The pros and cons / risks and rewards of the different forms of social finance available
- What investors are looking for and what they are willing to invest in
- How to clarify what type of investment you would be looking for, how much you would need and what return (social and financial) can be expected.
