Social Enterprise Planning Toolkit
A Social Enterprise Planning Toolkit has just been published.
The toolkit is a practical manual on how to do the feasibility planning to set up a Social Enterprise. The toolkit goes through the technical stages required to prepare a business plan with a clear business case for securing funding and other types of support. It is designed for groups or individuals interested in establishing new social enterprises. The toolkit also includes the definition of social enterprise and its history.
This Toolkit was prepared by Freer Spreckley with support from the British Council as supporting material for a ten module training course in Social Enterprise Planning which Local Livelihoods delivered in 5 countries in the Balkans and the Caucuses: with their kind permission it can be freely downloaded at:
