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.

Places will be limited as we accommodate a number of stall holders in our usual space. Book early! 

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:

If you would like a stall for your BME social enterprise please contact Alison Crush by email at or ring 0161 277 1022.
