Social investment — made understandable, relevant and available

Social_Investment_Workshop_–_Understandable__Relevant_and_Available_Tickets__Birmingham___EventbriteWhat do social investors look for in organisations? What’s it like for a social enterprise to go through the process of securing investment?

Big Issue Invest (BII) and Charity Bank have put together a social investment workshop to answer these questions.

Peter Hughes (Charity Bank) and Kevin Lloyd-Evans (BII) have been working with social enterprises and charities for the past 15 years. They will share their insights and experiences alongside Bromsgrove based charity NewStarts, which recently secured a £400,000 joint investment from BII and Charity Bank (more in this post).

The workshop takes place from 2.00pm-4pm at Unit G2, The Arch, Floodgate Street, Birmingham B5 5SL on Thursday 30th July 2015.

It will be informal, open to all and of particular interest to charities and social enterprises seeking to borrow to:

» purchase a property
» purchase a piece of equipment
» boost working capital to scale up existing operations
