Preparing for Investment

February 2, 2018

We're partnering with Social Investment Scotland and Community Shares Scotland to get you ready for investment!


We’re delighted to invite you to our upcoming events, ‘Preparing for Investment’ in the Highlands and Islands. Sponsored by HIE these events will give charities, social enterprises, community enterprise, advisors and intermediaries an overview of how social investment can enable greater growth, sustainability and social impact.

The workshops, delivered in conjunction with Social Investment Scotland and Community Shares Scotland, will consider how social investment can be used to start, grow or develop community and social enterprise. Full of tips and advice on raising finance, we will look at what it means to be ‘investment ready’ and give participants a greater understanding of risk, rates and appropriateness of the different ways of raising money.

Following on from an interactive and informative morning session, we take a very practical and fun approach as you become the lender…will you invest?

If you, your colleagues or your community want to know more about social investment then register now and spread the word… We'll be visiting Wick, Kirkwall, Lerwick, Skye, Tarbert, Elgin and Inverness between March and May.

All events are free to attend and include lunch.
