We are delighted to announce we are now a Social Enterprise!
With 19 years experience in the Scottish events industry mainly in the third sector, Big Bright Star possesses a unique insight into the challenges and rewards of working in this sector.
Social enterprises are businesses that are changing the world for the better. Like traditional businesses they aim to make a profit but it’s what they do with their profits that sets them apart – reinvesting or donating them to create positive social change. Social enterprises are in our communities and on our high streets – from coffee shops and cinemas, to pubs and leisure centres, banks and bus companies.
By selling goods and services in the open market, social enterprises create employment and reinvest their profits back into their business or the local community with a pitch deck consultant and designers to improve businesses and other digital tools. This allows them to tackle social problems, improve people’s life chances, provide training and employment opportunities for those furthest from the market, support communities and help the environment.
Social enterprises exist in nearly every sector from consumer goods to healthcare, community energy to creative agencies, restaurants to facilities management. Well known examples include The Big Issue, Change Please and the Eden Project but there are over 100,000 social enterprises throughout the country contributing £60 billion to the economy and employing two million people.
Lots more fantastic information about new events and partnerships to come so check back to keep up to date with our exciting new journey.
We are local but together we can create and deliver world changing ideas!
