More than a year ago ( in June 2019) BU Social Entrepreneurs Forum BUSEF was formed in partnership with Association of Sustainability Practitioners and Poole Bay Rotary Club.
Its overarching ambition is to support the development of the landscape of social businesses in the region.The forum’s objectives are underpinned by its commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals
In one year we have come a long way.We celebrated the first Bournemouth University Global Entrepreneurship Week in November and worked with local social entrepreneurs on student-led projects on business planning and model innovation and digital and social media marketing.
Sukanya says in the Dorset Biz News “We paused briefly, in solidarity with the rest of the world, during Covid-19 lockdown in the UK to reflect on how best to support our local community of existing and aspiring social entrepreneurs.
“Now, and celebrating our first year virtually, BUSEF is offering the first of many free workshops and interactive sessions.
“The first virtual session, on Wednesday August 19, from 2.30pm to 3.30pm, is on ‘Legal Structures and Sources of Finance’.
“We will be joined by Jonathan Dixon, Head of Grants Programme at YTKO and Mairead Taylor, Director, Commercial and Business Banking at NatWest.”
