Understanding Social Investment,
10.00am to 12.30pm, (followed by lunch)
During the morning we take a detailed look at social investment: what it is and how it can be used as an enabler for growth, sustainability and the delivery of greater social impact.
We examine the opportunities it offers in helping to finance the purchase of assets, easing cash flow and starting a new enterprise,.
And we do this in context of the new Scottish Government Social Enterprise Strategy whilst remaining realistic about the realities of taking on debt (having the Will, the Skill and someone to send a Bill to!)
Looking at Investment from a different perspective,
1.15pm to 3.30pm
And then in the afternoon we take a very practical and fun approach to accessing social investment. You become the lender and are given a real application to consider. Would you lend the money?
This starts with an interview of the SIS staff (who play the role of the applicant) and an assessment as more information emerges.
It all comes down to the point where attendees discuss the strengths and merits of the application (which generally splits opinion)….all great fun and no better way to really understand if social investment is for your organisation!
