City Drive is back for 2018 — with a packed week of events and some very special news

With 2018 marking the fifth anniversary of the Digbeth Social Enterprise Quarter, iSE’s week-long CITY DRIVE 2018 series of events will kick off again on Monday 23rd April and this year it will be very special. 

BSSEC is pleased to be sponsoring an event to showcase the changing face of social enterprise with a networking and discussion session aimed at newer, younger social enterprises on Monday 23rd April (booking details and see below).

Our friends at PSIAMS are sponsoring an event on INNOVATION IN THE CARE SECTOR on Tuesday 24th April, while Citizen Home is sponsoring a special event for retailing social enterprises on Tuesday 24th April (booking details for both events).

City Drive 2018 also marks Birmingham’s official bid to become a social enterprise city

But this is just the tip of the iceberg. The really big news is that this year, on Friday 27th April, City Drive’s final day, there will be a very special Social Enterprise Festival in the DSEQ — and this will also be marking Birmingham’s official bid to become a social enterprise city.
