WiSE Wednesday Webinar #9 — Social investment: hear from the entrepreneurs

iSE welcomes you to the last of its WiSE Wednesday webinars for 2020 — a  social investment panel conversation with Melanie Mills, Senior Director, Social Sector Engagement at Big Society Capital and social entrepreneurs who have taken social investment.
Hear expert insights from the world of social investment from Melanie Mills of Big Society Capital. Melanie will chair this session exploring participants’ stories of how social investment has benefitted their organisations, and what they wish they’d known in their investment journey.
The conversation will cover:
  • Taking on debt during a pandemic Some call it brave, some call it some terrifying and taking on debt during a global health pandemic is certainly not for everyone. Yet taking risks can often yield great rewards.
  • Flexible finance?  Covid-19 has shaken up almost every aspect of our lives but what has it been like for someone whose taken on repayable finance. Exactly how flexible is social investment?
  • For better or for worse  Social investors genuinely care about their investees but how has the strain of the pandemic impacted on those treasured relationships and how have they changed?
