The exchange marketplace will also feature a zone to help social enterprises navigate their way through the world of social finance and support organisations.

Among the sessions at the day-long event are a retail academy discussion, which will address the lessons learnt from the SIS Retail Academy Programme, and advice on how to scale up a social enterprise through investment, including Firstport’s LaunchMe programme.
