The Cornerstone Professional Conference 2010 entitled ‘Attracting Social Investment' will be the first of its kind in Scotland and will inform delegates from the voluntary and public sector on how to change from a grant and statutory funded environment to embrace investment-led and business-like approaches that deliver growth, accountability and sustainability.
Social investment and private sector professionals will inform conference delegates about the strategies, methods and financial products that exist to catalyse growth and financial sustainability in the third sector.
The conference will also hear from professionals that have successfully used social investment to build their organisations. In addition to our keynote speakers and panel sessions, delegates will participate in conversations that expose the key ingredients required to attract social investment. These include robust business planning, leadership, entrepreneurship, risk and seed capital.
