To succeed and thrive, social enterprises must communicate well, evidence their worth and compete for business in a busy and innovative marketplace. Investment in a strong and well thought out brand should be core to ongoing sustainability and growth but too often, social enterprises struggle to develop the kind of brand that will set the course of future success.
Brand for Growth is an opportunity to invest in your brand. Funded by the Scottish Government as part of their 3 year Social Enterprise Action Plan ‘Building a Sustainable Social Enterprise Sector,’ Brand for Growth is a competitive programme aimed at ambitious social enterprises with high growth and high impact potential who can bring something to the table themselves. The programme is being delivered by BOLD, part of the Community Enterprise family.
Applicants need to set out how a strong and strategic brand would impact on their business and how it would build capacity. To apply: bit.ly/BrandForGrowth
