Guernsey residents Nyasha Gwatidzo and Korinne Le Page have joined forces to launch Guernsey’s first conference focused on social entrepreneurship. The conference will highlight the roles that businesses can play in using market based solutions to overcome social challenges in our community.
Great examples of this in Guernsey are Go Guernsey which runs as number of retail outlets that focus on job training and employment for youth and special needs and the Caritas Cafe which provides employment as well as a place to meet to those suffering from mental illness, loneliness and other societal challenges.
Justin Sykes, our Managing Director will be representing Innovest Advisory, defining and giving examples of social impact projects internationally and locally, and explaining the different funding mechanisms for them and how social enterprises can become impact investment ready.
We are delighted to participate in this conference and help build awareness of social entrepreneurship on island, as well as provide practical advice to social enterprises or aspiring social enterprises on how to structure for success and to raise funding.
