Community Finance


Accessing finance: how to succeed

11.00 – 12.30 hrs / Studio

Communities for cohousing or social enterprises often face difficulty accessing finance. Some projects have succeeded, however, by raising money within the community. The dilemmas seem to focus on creating a good balance between individual energy and profits and communal needs and returns. In this workshop we will examine strategies, opportunities and challenges with experts from all over Europe. The workshop will be organized as a lab, assessing two cases with a finance-related question. Participants are invited to contribute their expertise and use the opportunity to put their own questions on the table.
