Social and micro enterprises - businesses operating with a social or environmental purpose - have the ability to transform markets. A publication by PwC UK, explains that social enterprises are outperforming other SME’s in nearly every area: turnover growth, workforce growth, job creation, innovation, business optimism, and start-up rates. PwC’s Social Entrepreneurs Club - a network made up of 250 social enterprises - aims to support the growing group of businesses that are working to empower communities across the UK.
Members can take advantage of a number of exclusive networking, skills development and mentoring opportunities, provided by PwC UK, designed to help social entrepreneurs develop and grow their businesses, as well as their impact.
The club centres around four core offerings which give members the opportunity to participate in areas of their interest and where they’re looking to develop themselves and their business.
Impact and potential:
Over the last five years, PwC partners and staff have volunteered more than 6,000 hours, with the programme benefitting more than 485 social enterprises, and our cash, time and in-kind support providing a combined value of £2.5m to our club members and social enterprise partners.
