Social Business Modelling & Scaling


This workshop will cover a broad range of integrated topics that are instrumental in creating and expanding a successful social business model. From topics such as Validation and Value Proposition, to Finance and Business Planning all the way through to practical tools to help formalise and reach ‘Scale’ for a successful social business idea. This workshop is all about ‘future proofing’ your business for a constantly changing and evolving marketplace.
