Own Homes, Global
The Give Us A Chance Consortium (GUAC) would like to invite you to this webinar where we look at an innovative scheme to unlock business for everyone so that even the most disadvantaged residents can take part..
Residents, Enterprise and Support
In this webinar we’ll discuss the impact that residents have when they start businesses, and look at what type of support works to help people to do this at the grassroots level.
We’ll be joined by Richard Lanning a co-founder of a social enterprise that has now helped over thousand resident entrepreneurs to look at starting their business. We’ll discuss what types of support work best and how we can ensure that the benefits of small local businesses are brought into more communities.
You will need to register for this on the Landing Page for the Webinar and you can do that at https://app.webinarjam.net/register/20480/51d9f976e1
This Webinar is one of a series where we look at the innovative work of how through working together, housing associations and social landlords can make a difference in the employment prospects of their residents and have an influence on policy.
In 2012 Richard Lanning set-up Enterprise CUBE, with co-founder Paul Funnell, after realising that there was a real need for a new way of enabling and supporting people looking to start a business within disadvantaged communities.
His ambition to create and unlock business for everyone, CUBE, comes from a belief that small businesses in the heart of local communities can be a force for good. So over the last five years he and the team at the ‘CUBE’ team, have been finding ways to break down the process of starting a business to make it easy to understand and do.
Enterprise CUBE is a social enterprise created to fill a gap between disadvantaged people and business.
The CUBE team discovered, through their work with homeless charities and housing associations, that there is huge untapped potential in the country. A vast pool of talented and passionate people dream of starting a business, as well as many more already in business, that want to do more through their work to help their communities.
This Webinar is being developed with GUAC that works in partnership with a range of stakeholders to build influence around the housing and employment agenda, on behalf of their members.
Through their influencing, sharing and partnership development priorities they aim to put social housing providers at the heart of the employment and skills agenda
