Social Start-Up School
Do you have a great business idea which could positively impact your local community or environment?
You could be part of the social business movement, joining over 6,000 social enterprises across Scotland which already trade to address social needs, to strengthen communities, to improve people’s lives and to protect the environment?
What is it?
The Highlands and Islands region is part of an international programme offering dedicated help for anyone setting up or developing a new social business.
Four social business start-up schools have been set up across the region - in Sutherland, Wester Ross, Easter Ross and in the Outer Hebrides. Until we can meet again safely, and for the duration of the COVID-19 restrictions, Start-Up School will be delivered entirely online.
By signing up to this programme you'll get access to:
- Coaching Support - you’ll have your own experienced social business coach, local to your area. The coaching sessions can help you develop your plans and tackle the obstacles you may face. These can be via telephone or video conferencing.
- Online Workshops - a range of interactive webinars, in which we explore issues such as finance, funding and investment, selling online and project management.
- Online self-directed learning - access to a library of over 2,000 interactive resources covering leadership and strategy, managing people and teams and personal skills and development.
