Investment Support Webinar Series Launch

Don’t miss our Investment Support Webinar Series this month aimed to help you secure funding to see your business through COVID-19.

We know that a lot of social businesses are facing seemingly insurmountable uncertainty and trying to secure funding during COVID-19, which is why we’ve put together the Investment Support Webinar Series.

Key Themes

Our main focus will be around investment readiness support. For this your organisation will need to jump through 3 big hoops to secure funding on the other side. These key themes for the webinars will help you answer the questions below:

  • What is your contingency plan during this time?
  • Do you have all of the documentation you need to be eligible for funding?
  • What is your impact your business provides and can you articulate it clearly enough for Funders to understand and back you?

Webinars

For this series we have 5 key note speakers you won’t want to miss. Come ready with questions, as we will have some time dedicated to Q&A to make sure you leave each webinar with confidence.

Every copy counts this Christmas

Your local vendor is at the sharp end of the cost-of-living crisis this Christmas. Prices of energy and food are rising rapidly. As is the cost of rent. All at their highest rate in 40 years. Vendors are amongst the most vulnerable people affected. Support our vendors to earn as much as they can and give them a fighting chance this Christmas.
