Driving Growth

One of the major issues with social enterprises is that they tend to be small. This is one of the areas that the Ryan Academy for Entrepreneurship has been looking at closely in recent months. Late in 2009 the Academy ran its first Social Enterprise Development module, over eight classes, based in DCU in the Community facility in Ballymun. The class was aimed at developing key skills for staff and management in social enterprises.

Key areas that were covered included earned income strategies, venture philanthropy, technology, governance, strategic planning and new trends in social enterprise from around the world. This popular module is being run again in mid February over 4 half day sessions, for more information please contact the Ryan Academy via any of the links. Managing growth and creating robust and sustainable social enterprises is vital to the health of the sector and to the overall economic recovery of the country.
