Greater Manchester and Manchester BME Network; Market Place and Joint Networking Event

 Registration is closed for this event

A different format for the first 2019 networking event, this will include a “Market Place” for BME Social Entrepreneurs and everyone interested. It brings together recent work by GMCVO in partnership with GMBMEN and Flourish on connecting BME Social Entrepreneurs to social investment and will be held on Wednesday 30th January 2019. We will be starting promptly at 10am (registration from 9.30am).

Come along and meet BME social entrepreneurs, support their enterprise journey and learn about our research. You will have the opportunity as usual to drop into information, support and learning sessions about social investment, social enterprise and finding resources and funding.

Lots of Information Exchange and Networking followed by a Free lunch provided by our social entrepreneurs.

Lunch will be provided by BME Network members who are social entrepreneurs. 

Please note that this event is FREE to FULL members of the Greater Manchester and the Manchester BME Networks (i.e. BME-led organisations or individuals). For Associate members (i.e. non BME-led) and other organisations the charge will be £20.

The full criteria for membership can be found here:
