The School for Social Entrepreneurs is running new programmes for 2020

Accelerating Women’s Enterprise (AWE)

Accelerating Women’s Enterprise is a new collaborative project to help women living in various regions either side of the English Channel to increase their personal skills and develop their business ideas and knowledge.  Across Cornwall we will support women through new training workshops, face to face advice, and mentoring, all developed specifically for women.  This programme is funded by INTERREG and European Union.

Our first programme will be delivered in Penzance from Wednesday 4 March, with all programmes consisting of blocks of 6 weeks of workshops; 1 day per week over a six-week period. Days will be from 10am – 4pm and SSE can support participants with travel and childcare costs.

Springboard – Growing Community Ideas

Over the next two years SSE will be working across Falmouth, Penryn, Truro, Camborne, Redruth, Pool, Illogan and St Day to offer 12 hours minimum of free support in an encouraging and safe setting to explore business ideas.  This programme is funded by CLLD and EU Structural and Investment Funds.

No previous experience or qualifications are needed.  So if you have an idea or cause you are passionate about about, and want to explore how you can bring the idea to life and make a difference, or you already run a new business or social enterprise (less than 12 months old) and want to it to grow and develop, then this the programme for you.

The first programme will be delivered in Penryn in March – to find out more email springboard@ssecornwall.org or call 07894 707976
