Around the world for Social Enterprise Day
To mark this year’s Social Enterprise Day HCT Group has been hosting visits from around the world.
Organised by the British Council, both visits were aimed at encouraging and developing social enterprise across the globe. Our first visitors were from Kenya and Ethiopia – participants on a study visit seeking to gain an overview of the sector in the UK, looking at policy, finance, education, incubation as well as Social Enterprises themselves. Their aim is to share knowledge and expertise which they can take back with them and implement aspects of in country.
Our second visitors were a group of prestigious international journalists from Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines, on a trip to find out more about social enterprise and social investment, hosted by Pioneer’s Post.
Dai Powell, HCT Group Chief Executive, said “We’ve really enjoyed marking Social Enterprise Day by making new friends form across the world. I’m delighted that Social Enterprise is increasingly a genuine global movement, making a real difference to communities.”
