The growth of the social enterprise sector has grown rapidly over the past 20 years in the North East of England. Being passionate about the sector, it plays a significant part of our social fabric providing crucial goods and services to the local community. If you are considering starting or already run a social enterprise you’ll no doubt encounter times when you need a little support with areas such as digital marketing, strategic planning or other areas that will help develop and grow your venture. Here’s how I can help.
Setting up a social enterprise for the first time can be complex, particularly with regards to the legal structures, raising finance and governance. It is also important to understand the viability of your “idea” as many businesses fail due to lack of research. Enterprise Know Howe has expert knowledge and experience in coaching individuals to set up successful businesses in Gateshead, Newcastle, South Tyneside and across the North East.
Enterprise Know Howe can assist your social enterprise in tackling those growth issues, reviewing your strategic aims and building current or new markets. It’s sometimes difficult to step away and look at things with a different perspective. Making that initial call to get help is the first step to help you tackle issues that might have put off. It’s a priority that you make your business work so get someone to help you to identify, prioritise and talk through the steps you need to take next. I can help you evaluate and develop new innovative ways to build your enterprise for success. Key areas of enterprise support include marketing and promotion, digital marketing, business plans and raising investment, new product development and strategic planning. Support can also be provided in raising finance for the project/support if required (subject to availability and meeting funding criteria).
Here’s a few areas I can help you grow and develop your social enterprise if you are based in Gateshead, Newcastle, South Tyneside, North Tyneside, Durham or Northumberland.
