Creative Ways to Finance Your Community Business Webinar 11th October

We are working in association with the Plunkett Foundation to offer this webinar for community businesses at all stages – from pre-opening to long established.

It will look at a variety of financing options for community businesses with input from sector experts. This webinar is suitable for:

  • Community Spaces

  • Community Led Housing
  • Energy Projects
  • Sports Clubs
  • Gardens, Horticulture & Heritage/ Woodlands
  • Any Social Enterprise

Learn how to raise the funds to get your project off the ground or to expand and diversify an existing business. Also how and when to run a second share offer, understand the benefits of social investment and community shares, and finally to demystify crowd-funding and understand its potential place in your business.

Chris Buckham, Plunkett advisor, will lead the session, supported by Tim Coomer from Co-operative and Community Finance, with representatives from the Crowd-funding sector sharing inspirational case studies.

It will take place on Wednesday 11th October from 10.00 - 11.30am.
