The Shape of the Social Investment Market

Social Investment is no longer for traditional Social Enterprises but increasingly For Profit Social Businesses are also eligible. A range of major funds are already here and more are in the pipeline. How is the market developing and will Social Businesses have an affect on how it is shaped? Is the Investment Readiness Funding really helping get organisations to take risk capital? Is Impact Measurement and Reporting the biggest challenge as legal structures become less of a criteria? How we can ensure more supply means more and better quality deals? Who still isn’t able to access the market?

This is your chance to ask the panel and make your voice heard on the new Social Investment Marketplace.

3. Can social value help you make better decisions and grow your enterprise?

With new forms of finance and the Social Value Act measuring Social Value is becoming increasingly important. How can information from measuring social value be utilised by organisations and managers to make better decisions alongside satisfying stakeholders?

Guy from CASA will talk about how CASA has overcome this challenge as they grew out of their founding base in Sunderland.

SEYH Property Brokerage

 

SEYH are delighted to be working with Paul Hammond Associates to provide properties for Meanwhile Use to Social Enterprises at no cost.

Paul Hammond Associates manage properties on behalf of landlords who are unable to let them. The properties are retail, office and light industrial.

The initiative works due to the savings a landlord can make in terms of business rates and insurance costs, a portion of which the landlord donates back to the occupying organisation to cover their costs.

The only downside is that Paul Hammond can't guarantee the length of tenancy but it is in excess of 12 months on average with 2 weeks’ notice to quit.

Process

 

SEYH will list the properties on the property section of the website and twice a month list all the current vacancies in the newsletter. There will also be two deadlines a month to apply (Download an application Form Here: Property_Application.doc) and after each deadline SEYH will check the applications and choose the most suitable using the following criteria:

 

-          Eligibility for Business Rate Relief

-          Property Use

-          Viability of Enterprise

-          Geography

-          Track Record

 

If a relationship is brokered an invoice will be issued only at this stage.

 

SEYH will also have a list of prefered suppliers for complimentary services such as Furniture and Insurance.
