The Good Entrepreneur Festival is a series of 5 seminars giving you the know-how to set up a business that does good.
About this event
The Good Entrepreneur Festival provides business and startup know-how to all those wanting to find out more about the process of building a good business, one that serves the people, the planet and also makes a profit. Learn about social and environmental impact and how entrepreneurs are using their startups as a tool to make the world a better place.
Delivered online by entrepreneurial experts every Tuesday from February 2nd to March 2nd 6.30pm until 7.30pm, these engaging seminars provide hands-on tips and advice you can actually apply to your own social enterprise or business. Plenty of time for questions and answers too!
We have invited 3 inspirational Good Entrepreneurs from social enterprise Leiho, community app Joy and ethical coffee company Little Coffee Company. They'll share their entrepreneurial journeys of being businesses for good and the event will end with the announcement of the winners of the Pitch for Good competition.
