Organised/hosted by: 
School for Social Entrepreneurs

Do you run your own social enterprise, such as a community business, charity, or company dedicated to bringing about social or environmental change?

Want to know how to expand, grow, and stand on your own two feet without the help of grants?

Then our Getting Serious: Next Steps to Success course is for you!

This programme is for social enterprises in South Bristol – it’s part of the South Bristol Enterprise Support (SBES) project, in collaboration with Bristol City Council.

What’s in it for you?

Our fully funded (therefore free to access) programme will bring business developers like you together, with support and advice from experts – and each other. Over three to five sessions we will look at:

  • Your enterprise’s vision and values
  • Measuring your enterprise’s social impact
  • Income diversification – selling, costing, pricing and investment
  • Business planning
  • Branding and marketing
  • Understanding your customer
  • Sustainability – trading with people and planet in mind

There are opportunities for grants, business review panels and peer support as part of this programme.

Who can apply?

To be eligible for a place on the South Bristol Next Steps to Success course, you need to be:

  • Currently living or working in the South Bristol region (or planning to in the very near future).
  • Your community group or business idea must already be incorporated (as, for example, a sole trader, a Community Interest Company, or charity). Beginners or those thinking of setting up a new venture should instead check out our SBES Strong Foundations course.
