Growing a Social Enterprise Platform
This year Plymouth will celebrate its 2nd anniversary of being a ‘Social Enterprise City’ in recognition of its important role as a social enterprise hot spot. The status of ‘Social Enterprise City’ has not only helped to raise the profile of the South West but has more importantly contributed to developing a wide range of opportunities and initiatives for social entrepreneurs and enterprises. The University is a key partner in the delivery of the Social Enterprise City initiative, and was the first university in the UK to be awarded the Social Enterprise Mark.
Futures Entrepreneurship Centre launched by the University in November 2013, provides a creative and social space in which entrepreneurship and social
enterprise can flourish and become a force for global organisational, societal,
economic and environmental change. The centre continues to support the vibrant
and growing social enterprise sector within the city and across the wider
region. It is also creating a platform for growth and offer regional
social enterprises the opportunity to share their experience and knowledge and
playing our part in developing an ecosystem where social enterprises flourish.
