Academy Hosts Local Social Entrepreneurs

Academy Hosts Local Social Entrepreneurs

 

As part of our activities to mark Global Entrepreneurship Week we were delighted to host Enterprise With Meaning at the Academy last night. Organised by the Bevy, the Community Pub in Bevendean, the event gave 18-25 year olds who want to make their community a better place the chance to meet successful local social entrepreneurs and find out how to get funding and support to turn their ideas into reality.

Young people had the chance to meet inspirational entrepreneurs who have established their own social businesses, like "Brighton supermarket rebels" HISBE and the Big Lemon bus company, companies making a massive difference across Brighton and Hove. Chair of the Bevy and BACA governor Warren Carter said: "It was a fun way of show-casing how young people can get involved or start their own enterprises."
