ISBC Social Enterprises to unveil their initiatives VIA ONLINE SHOWCASE
Participants from ISBC’s Incubator Programme will present their projects on Thursday July 16 at 3pm
The Irish Social Business Campus (ISBC) is reaching the end of its 5th dedicated social enterprise incubator programme, ‘Business for Social Impact’.
The programme, designed specifically to create and develop sustainable businesses that make positive social impact is run in cooperation with SECAD in Midleton. The 2020 incubator has seen 9 new initiatives advance through the 5 month programme. Since January this year participants have been immersed in educational workshops, sessions with consultants and mentors and on Thursday July 16 their progress will be unveiled via an Online Showcase full of the feel good factor.
Eamon Ryan, CEO of ISBC said; “Covid 19 has proven how the well-being of our communities is dependent on people who step beyond the norm in addressing un-met demand for critical services. We all owe an increasing debt to those socially motivated people, as exemplified by our participants, who simply want to contribute positively to the benefit of us all.”
The range of challenges tackled in the 2020 Programme is very diverse. These range from creativity and wellness in young children, upper limb stroke rehabilitation, enhancing fitness in the older generations to a community centric arts hub and much more. Participants came from throughout Munster (Cork, Kerry and Limerick) and in keeping with the communities they serve demonstrated great resilience in adapting mid programme to an ‘on-line’ delivery.
