Why we're supporting Manchester Social Entrepreneurs

Written on Friday, 14th August 2015.

Manchester Social Entrepreneurs is a monthly meetup founded by the wonderful George and co-organised with Vim, to encourage social entrepreneurs to network, discuss their projects, opinions and ideas that will help #changetheworld.

SpacePortX is proudly supporting this meetup because social entrepreneurs generate and work towards innovative solutions to society’s most pressing social problems which really add value to their business and enterprises. One of the things that is most commonly misunderstood about social enterprises, is that they’re not charities. Nope. Certainly not. They just operate their businesses in a way that creates an impact in the world we live in, it’s consuming with a conscience and a sustainable way of making a profit.

Manchester’s up and coming social enterprises regularly attend Manchester Social Entrepreneurs including Clearly SoGet Out And GiveNelfieIMPACT and Objectives First to name a few - and networking with the founders of these enterprises really provides you with an indepth insight to the world of social entrepreneurship. It was of understanding the landscape, what’s being done and knowledge sharing. SpacePortX is happy to be home to Manchester Social Entrepreneurs, not only because they’re doing amazing things, but they helping being to better their startups.

Manchester Social Entrepreneurs have held over 6 meetups, each having a different theme and presentation. The format is kept quite simple - a short presentation followed by casual networking. The meetup is not only useful for meeting new entrepreneurs and learning about new and upcoming social enterprises, but it also helps entrepreneurs who are in the process of kickstarting their very own social enterprises through guest speakers, talking about a ranges of helpful topics - from how to get started, to how to raise capital. Plus Manchester Social Entrepreneurs, gives social enterprises the chance to take the meetup into their own hands and create workshops and presentations that solve real life business problems.
