Let's Talk Good Finance East Midlands

 Registration is closed for this event

Are you a charity, social enterprise or organisation that would like to know more about social investment, meet social investors and hear about and from other organisations that have used social investment to sustain or grow their organisation?


Following demand raised at the recent Life Chances Fund Information Event, Big Society Capital is working with One East Midlands and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport to bring their Let's Talk Good Finance events to the East Midlands.  The event is in Nottingham on the afternoon of the 24th April. These events aim to demystify social investment and enable organisations to share their experiences.


This event has been developed with the aim of bringing together charities, social enterprises and organisations with social investors and intermediary bodies to network, share information and discuss latest issues relating to social finance.  The event will begin with an absolute basic awareness raising about social investment, social impact bonds and other related concepts.
