SIS Retail Academy 2.0

Social Investment Scotland

This event is in the past

We are once again reaching out to impactful and mission-driven businesses, made possible by the ongoing support from Asda and the Scottish Government, but this time we are taking the Academy and the learning to the next level.

The Programme will run from 25th – 29th October and will provide ambitious social enterprises and entrepreneurs across the UK access to world-famous industry experts and speakers. The event will be hosted by SIS Associate, Rachael Brown.

The all-new programme offers a unique opportunity for those ready to scale and grow their operations with insights from speakers who have the expertise and experience of working in or with businesses who have gone on to do just that and reaching a new and profitable chapter in their venture - our sessions will support this journey through:

• Finance - ensuring the numbers are ready for the next stage

• Planning for action - legalities, risks and liabilities

• Leadership - creating a growth mindset

• Scaling – generating sales, wholesaling, and going global

• Marketing & Sales - levelling up and growing a customer base

SIS Retail Academy is there to support organisations who are ready to take their next and bold step whilst creating greater social and environmental impact. We believe that this presents an amazing opportunity and at a time where organisations can access customers new diverse ways of purchasing services, products, experiences and engaging in the commercial retailing space.

We would love to hear from a range of organisations with a social purpose and with their customer and the environment at the heart of what they produce and deliver. Applications are open until 7th October!

10:00, 25th October to 29th October 2021
