Social entrepreneurs, business support agencies, local authorities and other key public sector partners will be gathering at Birmingham’s ICC on the 27th January for a major launch of a new regional vision for social enterprise, organised by SEWM.
The half-day event will see the launch of The Time is Now, a social enterprise prospectus for the West Midlands, that calls for greater understanding, support and innovation to make social enterprise the first choice in the region. More than 100 delegates will discuss the challenges and opportunities facing one of the economy’s fastest growing sectors.
Kevin Maton, Network Director of SEWsays, “The prospectus aims to galvanise everyone who operates in the sector from the social entrepreneurs who make it happen, to the consumer who benefits, the public sector who procure services and business support agencies who are there to facilitate growth… In order to achieve this we need everyone to be on board and respond to the calls to action we will be setting out.”
There may still be a few places left — if you want to be part of ‘The Time is Now’ call Sandra Crowder at SEWM on 02476 633911.
