Training & Events
The national landscape is providing opportunities for enterprise growth and development and one in five start- ups are a social enterprise. At the same time charities whose traditional funding and financial models are dwindling or have disappeared and organisations are going into decline and folding if they have not spent sufficient time business planning for their longer term financial sustainability. Over reliance on grants, resistance to change and accessing newer sources of funding and some long held rational thinking about raising money and risk have contributed to a difficult landscape for the sector.
SBA’s programme of training, workshops and events are designed to address these issues and support VCSE organisations to manage the change and build resilience in the sector.
The Institute of Enterprise and Entrepreneurs is for anyone who is thinking about starting or already running their own business, those who support them and those employed in innovative and entrepreneurial businesses.
There are more than 30,000 members from across the spectrum of enterprise activity – students who have yet to start a business, entrepreneurs in the early stages of running their business, business owners looking to grow their business, managers working in an enterprising way, mentors and support professionals, and recognised learning providers.
