Key Fund is coming to N.E Lincolnshire
Key Fund is joining us to undertake a workshop and one-to-ones:
Dave Thornett, Key Funds Business Development Manager will be joining us on Tuesday 10th April 2018; community and social enterprises based in North East Lincolnshire have the opportunity to attend a workshop and one-to-one appointment.
Places for the ones-to-ones are very limited, so it is a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
We will be hosting the workshop and one-to-ones at The Enterprise Village, Prince Albert Gardens, Grimsby, DN31 3AT.
The workshop will include; the role of community shares, grant and finance in your organisation and investment readiness.
Dave will also advise on the various funds they manage. If you book a one-to-one Dave will be able to discuss your individual projects/organisation in more detail. If this workshop and the one-to-ones are well received Dave will return to undertake a Business Planning workshop.
A little bit about Key Fund:
Key Funds central mission is to provide finance – flexible loans and grant/loan packages – to help community and social enterprises to start-up, become sustainable, or grow. It’s not just about the money. It’s also about providing the right kind of support to help their investees have the best possible chance of success.
They invest in community and social enterprises who have traditionally been excluded; turned down by mainstream banks and building societies. Particularly those in disadvantaged areas.
Who they fund:
Organisations that share their values. They reinvest their profits back into helping other community and social businesses, your enterprise should have a positive social impact at its heart.
What they fund:
Key Fund can support a range of activities, from restoring a derelict building to buying equipment or meeting start-up costs. If you’re an existing enterprise that needs to adapt and shift its focus or create a new service, they can help with immediate cash-flow problems or working capital until you’re on your feet.
How might Key Fund invest:
They can provide investment of between £5,000 and £150,000 to support:
- Working capital to pay for staff or overheads
- Growth and development
- Contributing to the purchase and renovation of buildings
Investment can in some cases include a grant of up to 30%
The workshop will take place: 9.30am to 1:00pm. We have plenty of places available on the workshop and you can attend the workshop and not a one-to-one.
One-to-ones will take place from 1:30pm, places for the ones-to-ones are very limited, so it is a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
