Get together event planned for Sheffield entrepreneurs

Have your say

A new social networking event for budding businesspeople is being held by Sheffield Hallam University Students’ Union next month.

The Social Enterprise Social is being held at the Union Street venue on Union Street in the city centre on Thursday, November 20, from 5pm.

It will be a chance for students to exchange ideas and contacts with experienced social entrepreneurs and the aim is for it to be a regular event.

Guest speakers will also be a regular feature and the first will be Ben Allen, a self-taught, award winning artist.

Organisers hit on the idea after realising that social entrepreneurs are fragmented across the city and there is very little interaction between them. The project aims to to bring them together.
