We're Bigger Together!

Are you a social business looking to grow and break into new sectors or an entrepreneur with a great social business idea you want to get off the ground? 

Are you looking for some inspiration and advice around how to take your social business or social business idea to the next level?  If the answer is yes, our 'Bigger Together' events could provide that inspiration and advice you need.   First Ark, Big Issue Invest, and Fusion 21 have worked together to create two events (Liverpool and Manchester) that give you the opportunity to talk to social investment, business planning and legal experts.  You will also hear from health, education and housing organisations about how to win business in their sectors.

You will be able to find out more about funding available from the Big Issue Invest Fund prior to it being open to applications in April.  Meet Northwest social business, ParentHub who were successful in winning funding in the last round.
