Join us for a free breakfast event exploring opportunities in social enterprise and hear from two leaders who have built businesses that have changed the lives of many.
Josh Babarinde is founder of Cracked It, London's award-winning social enterprise smartphone repair service, staffed by young ex-offenders. Cracked It was named Social Enterprise of the Year by the Evening Standard in 2019 and also by the Centre for Social Justice in 2019. Dave Linton, founder of Madlug, is passionate about using Madlug to influence a new young generation of social entrepreneurs. He will share the Madlug story and the business insights that have helped him build the brand and grow an award-winning social business.
The event will be chaired by Professor Emeritus Ken O’Neill, Ulster University and Chair of the School for Social Enterprises Ireland, who will share his own insights on opportunities within social business. This event will also mark the official launch of Belfast City Council’s new Social Enterprise and Cooperative Support Programme delivered by Work West Enterprise Agency.
