About So you want to be a social entrepreneur?

Have you ever wanted to set up an organisation to tackle the difficult problems that we face as a community, society and world, but not known where to begin?

Have you heard the term "social venture" or "social enterprise" and don't really understand what it means?

Then this workshop is for you! It's for anyone with an interest in the thriving field of social entrepreneurship and looking to make a positive social or environmental impact on the world.

Who Is it for?

Community activists and volunteers: it's an opportunity to see if your project can scale and become sustainable.

Those considering setting up a social business, but don't know where to start: you'll be given the basic tools to develop a business model.

Those in the public sector interested in social entrepreneurship: it's a chance to think about how a social venture might complement the services you deliver.

Mission-led startups who could become social ventures: learn how social ventures are organised and funded.

About the workshop

The workshop is an inspiring introduction to social ventures. It's a valuable opportunity to learn more about the field and how to take your idea to the next level. In an inclusive, supportive and friendly atmosphere, you’ll have the opportunity to meet like-minded people and learn from the experience of Cambridge Social Ventures, part of Cambridge Judge Business School.

This specialised training is a half-day event organised in partnership with local social entrepreneurship organisations. Unlike other entrepreneurial training, ours is from a social perspective, with a strong focus on social impact within the context of creating and scaling a sustainable business.

What's in the workshop?

We will cover:

•     social business models

•     developing your value proposition

•     social impact assessment

•     basics of finance and company legal structures


Testimonials from other Cambridge Social Ventures events.

“This was my first introduction to social entrepreneurship and I really think it could change the course of my life, my career and how I impact the world.”

“I now have a focus on what I need to do to go from a sole trader to a social enterprise. I can visualise it and feel more confident in the way forward.”
