The proposed West Midlands Combined Authority is leading on improving transport and mental health to demonstrate how collaborative working and innovation can have a social and economic impact delivering cost savings and improving services. A key theme of Global Entrepreneurship Week 2015 is social enterprise.
So if you have a pressing need or burning desire to investigate and explore the opportunities that the West Midlands Combined Authority has for transforming the West Midlands into a regional powerhouse, then book your place now.
The Opportunities for Social Enterprise, Investment and Impact Conference on Thursday 19 November aims to build on the Big Society Capital/Social Enterprise West Midlands Social Finance Fair and provide a space for commissioners, community leaders, elected members, charities and social enterprises to explore those opportunities.
Whether it is Social Impact Bonds delivering improvements in Mental Health service design, delivery and outcomes, or Social Investment Bonds for transport infrastructure, Community Shares to acquire Assets of Community Value or Crowdfunding for grass roots projects such as car sharing or mental health peer support, this conference will help you make the right choices.
Whatever the future holds for the Combined Authority, social value and impact is sure to be at the heart to ensure best value for limited public monies.
