Only 1 week left to book onto the Social Venture

1st February 2016 By Foundation East in News

When: 4.30pm Friday 19 February to 5.30pm Sunday 21 February

Where: Cambridge Judge Business School

Who: For emerging social ventures and social entrepreneurs

The Social Venture Weekend offers two and a half days of intensive world class training for people with an ambition to set up or grow a business dedicated to making positive social impact. We work with ventures at all stages, from those with just an idea to those with established businesses. We’re currently supporting ventures in food, finance, education, biotech, agriculture and the community sector – the common thread is a strong social mission at the core.

The training, provided by Cambridge Judge Business School, helps emerging social ventures refine their idea and develop their business plan and pitch. Participants have the opportunity to share and test ideas with other social entrepreneurs, learn from the experiences of successful entrepreneurs and pitch their idea to a panel of experienced advisors, investors and entrepreneurs.

Thanks to Cabinet Office funding, we are able to offer the weekend for a fee of only £50 +VAT, with a co-founder or partner for a further £25 +VAT.
