Elders Council Webinar: Funding the Succession Challenge
When considering the vision of an organisation, the succession or transition of the founder is often not mentioned, let alone factored into the funding. How can we plan for, and finance, this part of the social enterprise lifecycle?
This webinar will consider:
The Social Entrepreneur: Is it retirement, or a change of post within the organisation? Is it succession or transition?
The Funder: How do funders support a good succession for the founder, the organisation and the people they serve? Do they invest in it? Financially or in other ways?
The Board: Some boards have been taken unawares by social entrepreneurs looking to move on. Other boards refuse to countenance it. Unfortunately, too few plan for it effectively.
The Elders Council for Social Entrepreneurs will discuss these important questions with the Co-Founder and CEO of Greenwood Place - Rebecca Eastmond. We're delighted that Rebecca will provide insights into how funders think as well as reflecting on the needs of social entrepreneurs. We invite you to join this lively and important discussion!
