Northamptonshire Growth Hub.
A series of FREE webinars giving advice on starting and growing social enterprises is now being delivered by Northamptonshire Growth Hub.
The sessions are aimed at social enterprises across the whole South East Midlands area and start-ups across Northamptonshire only.
The webinars are delivered by Andrew Cook, who is an experienced Business Adviser and Richard Hazenberg, Professor of Social Innovation at the University of Northampton Institute for Social Innovation and Impact.
Malcolm Johnston, Head of Enterprise at Northamptonshire Growth Hub, said: “These sessions give much-needed advice to emerging social enterprises who may need extra support to help them on their way.
“Webinars can be the perfect way of delivering training to a wider audience and the fact that they’re free is an additional incentive to take part, as every penny counts for growing young enterprises.”
The webinars are delivered as part of the South East Midlands Start-up Programme (SEMSUP), which is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund. The programme is led by Wenta and delivered in collaboration with its partners University of Northampton and University of Bedfordshire.
