Social enterprise is big business today. In 2017, in the UK alone there were more than 470,000 social enterprises employing 1.44 million people. In terms of new business, social enterprise is where the action is.
But what is a social enterprise and how does it differ to other types of start-up? This interactive event will explore social enterprises, the motivations behind them and the different set up structures available. Led by Naomi Mwasambili, the session will look at the differences between charities and social enterprises, whilst idenfying the things you need to think about when setting up and sustaining a social enterprise of your own.
Naomi is the founder and CEO of Chanua, a healthcare innovation agency solving some of the biggest challenges in mental health and wellbeing. She has over 10 years’ experience developing new projects, services and businesses that improve health and wellbeing. She is also one of LSBU's Entrepreneurs in Residence, and has many years experience supporting students and graduates to start and grow their own ventures.
This event is part of a series of the Student Enterprise events series at London South Bank University (LSBU).
This event is free to attend and everyone is welcome.
