New social enterprise networks and free networking events

Opportunities for social enterprise networking have become increasingly important. As funding for other more formal types of business advice and support has disappeared, there seems to be a growing appetite for peer support, networking and opportunities to meet like-minded people who are grappling with their own social enterprise problems and want to share expertise, experiences and solutions.

iSE is at the forefront of helping build new networks and forums for social enterprise — especially in localities where they haven’t previously existed — and has just announced the following free networking events.
