About This Event
Many social enterprises find themselves in a deadlock: foundation funding isn’t the right fit, but they’re not ready for an equity investment. So what financing options are available to them? Join Social Enterprise Alliance (SEA) on May 24th for our second Social Finance Webinar, Innovative Financing Options for Social Enterprises. In this webinar, attendees will discover some of the niche funding opportunities accessible to non-profit and for-profit social enterprises alike. Our panel of experienced sector speakers from Heron Foundation, Sorenson Impact Center and RSF Social Finance will discuss mission-related investments (MRIs), Social Impact Bonds (SIBs) and low-interest loans (debt investments.) Be sure to attend for an instructive and empowering course on unique financing options.
Registration is free for Social Enterprise Alliance members. To access the discount code, SEA members should login to their account and visit the Discount page.
Disclaimer: This webinar is not focused on applying for funding specifically from The Kresge Foundation or REDF, but rather a look into the landscape of social finance and capital from the perspective of the funder.
