New Webinar – ‘Raising Money the Co-operative Way’

Date: 25 May 2022 from 12.00

Title: ‘Raising Money the Co-operative Way’

Facilitator: Andy Cocktaildress

Co-operative Skills 2022 is a series of webinars aimed to further our understanding of co-operatives in Northern Ireland. The series is funded by the Belfast City Council.

We have invited practitioners from around UK and far afield to share their knowledge and skills. They will help us to develop co-op skills locally during short, relevant and interesting webinars from April to June 2022.

This webinar is all about money!

Andy Cocktaildress will explore what co-ops can do to raise money when most they need it. If you are thinking to raise ‘community shares’ or launch a loanstock offer, you must join this interesting overview on what works and what does not.
