  • Identify new business opportunities
  • Develop a new business and marketing plan that will accelerate your impact and support your organisations resilience

Social Investment and Funding

Social investment is a financial enablement tool – it enables organisations to focus on organisational development and long term sustainability. It can be used for buildings, infrastructure, IT, equipment, cashflow, enabling and retaining contracts and trading activities, kicking start new services / projects or strategic positioning. Grant funding alone is not a viable source of sustainable business funding.

Don’t be put off by the fear of having to repay a loan when you first start exploring social enterprise and investment. Going on the investment readiness and social investment journey is beneficial in that it will help you to think about the direction your organisation will take and where income will be generated and it will help you to develop a business mind-set. The journey is just as important as the end goal. You are not obliged to take out a loan when developing social enterprise business models but it is likely that you will need it if you are successful.
