Its back and this time it’s bigger and better!

The ‘State of the Sector’ report published by the Wales Co-operative Centre in 2015 found that lack of finance or funding was the main barrier to the sustainability of social businesses, with the sector witnessing a drastic reduction in the availability of grants, and competition for funding red hot. Social Business Wales have recently updated that research, and although the situation has improved somewhat, access to finance or funding was still identified as a major barrier to social businesses in Wales.

What additional finance options exist for social businesses?
Social Business Wales is on a mission to bring social businesses closer to social funders and investors. This is your chance to explore a mixture of funding options from debt or equity finance to grants to community shares.

Three key relationship building activities to help you source relevant finance and investment:
1. Bookable 20-minute meetings with social funders and investors to discuss your business finance requirements
2. Hourly roundtable discussions with Social Business Wales’ advisers on topics including asset purchases, business acquisitions, service diversification and crowdfunding
3. A light buffet lunch and networking galore!
