We are delighted to invite you to our upcoming programme of free workshops, ‘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 programme will be visiting:

The workshops, delivered in conjunction with Community Shares Scotland and Firstport, 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?
