How to grow a £5 million social enterprise: Taking risks and learning from mistakes
  • Room 202, Futures Entrepreneurship Centre, Mast House, Shepherd's Wharf, 24 Sutton Road, Plymouth PL4 0HJ

Over the past three years Street League has become a national social enterprise operating in 15 cities, trebled its outcomes to over 1,000 young people per year moving into work education or training, more than doubled its turnover to £5 million and has diversified income streams to the point that now over 60% comes from delivering public sector contracts. 

Number 10 Downing Street selected Street League to be its first ever official volunteering partner in 2011. Matt will join us by weblink to tell the story of how he transformed a small grant-dependent charity into the innovative and dynamic social enterprise that Street League is today.
