How to start a business that makes a difference

Social enterprises are businesses selling products or services that have a positive social or environmental impact. Join this session if you’re interested in making a profit with purpose and starting a business that is good for people and planet. Hear from two social entrepreneurs to learn how they did it:

Paula Braynion, founder of Future Directions, providing social care to those with learning difficulties and mental health issues.

Nile Henry, founder of The Blair Project, which uses eco-friendly go-karting to inspire careers in science, technology and engineering.

This discussion has been produced by the Human Lending Library, a free service from the British Library’s Business and IP Centre in Manchester’s Central Library. Through the Human Lending Library, leaders of social enterprises and charities looking for advice on growing their organisations are matched with successful business people as mentors.
