Grow Your Social Enterprise: Tourism Growth and Innovation Workshop (Dundee Social Enterprise Network and Scottish Enterprise)

9:30 am - 1 pm, Enterprise House, 3 Greenmarket, Dundee DD1 4QB

This half-day, fully interactive workshop is aimed at helping ambitious social enterprises in the Tay Cities area to better understand the local inbound tourism market and its potential for supporting growth within third sector organisations.

You will have the opportunity during the workshop to generate and develop ideas for tourism services and products. There will also be a clear pathway of follow-up support to encourage the implementation of individual and collaborative ideas identified during the workshop.

The workshop is open to any third sector organisation (social enterprise, charity or community group) across the wider Tay Cities Deal area (Dundee, Angus, Perth and Kinross and Fife) looking to develop their customer-facing business for the visitor market.

You will have the opportunity at the workshop to sign up for a 1-2-1 surgery with a Scottish Enterprise Innovation Specialist advisor. These surgeries will both provide a sounding board for your ideas and supply further information on accessing Scottish Enterprise innovation support and grants.
