Are you a social enterprise at the beginning of your journey looking for extra support and networking opportunities?

As part of the Spark Social Enterprise Project, The Platform, the University of Brighton and Social Innovation Factory have developed an online learning tool to support Social Enterprise start-ups to use innovation to set up and grow. We are currently recruiting a group of 30 start-ups to be the first to pilot this exclusive tool (which is not being officially launched until January 2019) and be connected with your peers to establish a network of mutual support across East and West Sussex.

As part of this opportunity that will take place between June and October you will:

•      attend two workshops to learn about and give feedback on the online course, 

•      taking part in facilitated action learning sets to seek support from, and to support your peers. 

•      Work through the online modules in your own time Modules cover topics such as how to innovate, finance models, marketing and sales, and growing and scaling.


This opportunity will be most useful if you have already started your Social Enterprise but are within 3 years of trading. It is open to all Social Enterprise start-ups in East and West Sussex but both workshops will take place in Brighton. If you need more information and to apply, please contact Leila by clicking here.
