Join us on the 23rd of November to celebrate Bristol as a Social Enterprise City!

Hear from some of Bristol's Social Economy success stories and network with other like-minded social entrepreneurs and supporters of social change.

Since Bristol was named one of the UK's 1st Social Enterprise Cities in 2013, there have been a number of successful developments in the sector ranging from securing EU funds to support a new regional Social Enterprise and Innovation Programme for people to start up and scale up; collaboration with the private sector through Bristol Junior Chamber's Social Economy Commission; to Bristol City Council's adoption of a dedicated Social Value Policy and procurement opportunities, including priority targets for voluntary, social and community organisations; and much much more...

Hear from leading players in the Bristol Social Enterprise support scene, as well as join an interactive panel debate and discussion on the future of business and the role of the Social Economy in Bristol.

Speakers and contributors include:

Councillor Asher Craig, Deputy Mayor for Bristol
Stuart Emmerson, Regional Director, Social Enterprise UK
Sandra Meadows, Interim Chief Executive, Voscur
Benjamin Pean, Airbus Procurement and Head of the Social Economy, Bristol Junior Chamber of Commerce
