Our speaker this week is Keith Young (the grey haired one) who runs the social enterprise Ilford Recycles. This is a project that provides 2 services – repairing bikes that have been thrown away and training up ex-homeless people with skills to work in the growing bike industries.
Tuesday 16th September.12.45 start. 1.30-2.30 networking.
This is a project that both trades and receives grants and you may be interested to hear some tips on both these aspects.
Keith will share his journey over the last year. The easy bit has been working with the volunteers, staff and bikes, the hard thing has been organisation, paper work, money matters and negotiating premises. Keith has tips on how to get organised which he says is very important.
Come along and hear from Keith, and take the time to network with Keith and other start-ups to build your business connections.
