The new format for Voice means the sessions are smaller and more interactive.
The session on Community Interest Companies (CICs) focused on financing CICs using equity and debt. People were very interested and talking about new ways of structuring finance to encourage more CICs.
Another session was a debate on whether social enterprise is the solution for public sector delivery. The key risk identified is the use of social enterprise as a stalking horse to privatisation. Great debate.
Sadly the Market is on the edge of the o2 and it’s freezing!
