“When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world.” George Washington Carver

What is Social Entrepreneurship?

Statement of Faith
You can find other “Market with Meaning” but you definitely want to see “Profit with Purpose”.
I personally “Believe in Kingdom Transformation” because I know there is only ONE “Life for Significant”.

Choosing the right legal structure is a big decision that can have a real impact on how your social enterprise performs. Why do some organisations choose, for instance, to be CICs, others opt for a different structure, registering as charities, setting up partnerships, or more simply sticking with a more “mainstream” company structure alone, as CLGs or a company limited by shares.

How can you ensure that you make the right choice?

Join us live on Thursday 1 March from 1pm to 3pm to discuss how you can reach consumers, or post your questions now.
