Key to social enterprise unveiled at University of Ulster

The University of Ulster is set to showcase its work with social enterprises across Northern Ireland at the Magee campus this week.

In one of the opening events of the university's inaugural Ulster Business Festival at the Magee campus, leading business experts will reveal the key to developing a successful social enterprise.

Guest speakers from organisations such as Dungiven-based 'Hands that Talk', who have already benefitted from collaborating with Ulster's Office of Innovation and the Faculty of Arts, will also highlight how the university's support has made a real difference to the north west.

Kerry Patterson, University of Ulster business development manager, said the target audience will be social enterprises from across Northern Ireland, but especially those based in the north west, and also key stakeholders.

"We would also like to reach out to any community and voluntary groups who are thinking about setting up a social enterprise," she said.

"There's something for everyone in terms of the third sector."

'Showcasing Innovation in Social Enterprise' will take place at 12pm tomorrow at the University of Ulster's Magee campus in Londonderry.
