This event is in the past.
The Young Foundation will be hosting an MBA focus group and networking session looking to share best practices and ideas on how to grow Social Ventures. Space is limited to first 15 who reply.
Social Ventures typical aspire to make a concerted SOCIAL IMPACT whilst being SUSTAINABLE and SCALABLE beyond the short term. As current MBA students or recent alumni, what IDEAS do you have that can help Social Ventures reach these goals and GROW? Come and share your viewpoints as next generation leaders with ideas about how to improve the social enterprise sector by making social ventures more market driven. Your valuable input will be used to feed into the Social Ventures Intermediaries Report commissioned by NESTA and due to be published in November.
We aim to discuss a few key topics such as finance mechanisms used to back social ventures, innovative commercial models, how to build the overall market appetite for social ventures, how to measure impact in these ventures, and any other innovative ideas you may have.
Drinks and nibbles will be provided. To RSVP, please email email@example.com with your name and business school affiliation (e.g. LBS, Saïd, Cambridge)
