CollaborationYou Can't Do It All by Yourself
Connecting and collaborating – reach out to find new ideas, opportunities and allies.
We believe people working together to create or achieve the same thing, have much better chance of success.
From those engaged in setting up or already running a business for social impact, to those simply interested in this subject – our open events give opportunity to learn about social enterprise sector and meet those who build it.
We activelly seek and facilitate connections within social enterprise sector, reach out to “mainstream business” for collaboration opportunities, helping to find mutual benefits.
“It is the long history of humankind (and animal kind, too) that those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed.”
We seek out and help foster opportunities between people and enterprises to collaborate to the mutual benefit. This is why we’re determined to bring those who care about social impact close together – in many ways:
Collaboration within social business sector
Collaboration between social business and mainstream business
Building awareness about social businesses
Collaboration with researchers & academia
Collaboration with support organisations
Join us at our open events – whether you’re running a social enterprise, not-for-profit organisation, charity, community organisation, thinking of setting one up or simply want to meet those who are passionate about making a positive difference.
Ask & Advise Evenings
Workshops and evening talks are a great way to learn something new and even more importantly an unique chance to meet like-minded people, passionate about making change.
One of our most important goals is helping people and organisations to connect in meaningful ways to their .mutual benefit .
On one side we have emerging social enterprises and other organisations making positive social impact, looking for a specific advice, and on the other side – skilled professionals, who are willing to give a few hours of their time, using their best skills and experience.
Making a meaningful connection between them brings great benefits to both!
Making connections amongst organisations who share the same goals and values has many tangible benefits.
Shared Interests Groups
Even though each organisation is unique, connecting with others who share same interests might be hugely beneficial to all sides.
Combining the various skills and offerings into a synergistic whole might be challenging, but it also brings benefits far beyond individual capabilities of those involved – i.e. being able to succesfully respond to tenders.
Get in touch!
Whether you are an emerging business with social impact, a support organisation, a researcher, someone involved in CSR or simply interested in this sector - let's connect!
