First ever Local Entrepreneur Forum comes to Lambeth on 2nd June
Cheaper tickets released! Only £9.99 for supper + evening session, 20% off in B£s
Everyone has a say and a part to play in the kind of economy they want to see in the world and Lambeth.
That's why Transition Town Brixton is curating the very first Lambeth Local Entrepreneur Forum where social enterprises will connect with their community and pitch to everyone - because everyone can be an investor! - for financial and in-kind support.
The event will connect five forward-thinking social enterprises: The Kitchen Table Projects, The Grain Grocer, The Library of Things, Spiral, and Remakery with a community of investors: of money, but also time, resources, moral support, Facebook likes, and anything else you have on offer!
You will also hear from Rob Hopkins, the founder of the global Transition Town movement, and Lambeth’s Entrepreneur-in-residence, Colin Crooks of Tree Shepherd, and have a chance to participate in two great workshops: from Oana Neumayer, director of a social enterprise crowdfunder Buzzbnk.org, and Mark Simmonds, formerly of Coops UK, about start-up funding.
It’ll be a great opportunity to meet members of your local community who are also interested in making local economy work – entrepreneurs, investors, and people who want to see a better future.
14.00 Registration and networking
14.30 – 17.30 Community think tank open space discussion: “How can we create a Community Supported Local Economy?”
18.00 – 19.00 Delicious local buffet supper
19.00 Keynote speaker: Rob Hopkins, founder of the Transition Town movement
