Brighton's Disruptive Change-makers (Meaning Fringe event)

  • PLATF9RM Hove Town Hall, Church Street BN3 3BQ United Kingdom (map)

There’s no doubt that business is a powerful force for change and it shapes our world for the better or worse. So why don't we harness the power of business for good, creating purpose-led businesses that directly benefit people and planet, as well as make money.

Imagine cities where all businesses are working towards a social or environmental goal - we could create transformational societies.

Like many cities across the world, Brighton is seeing a raise in businesses that are putting meaning and purpose at the heart of their strategy. Join The Good Business Club community on Tuesday 12th November from 6:30pm till 8:30pm at PLATF9RM Grounds in Hove, to see some real-life examples of these 'Business for Good' models.

Showcases

  • Now! Charity Group - an enterprising charity who are broadening their financial model to free themselves from the constraints of ever dwindling and increasingly competitive funding opportunities

  • RubyMoon - an established social enterprise who's model reduces plastic waster by creating high-quality, slow fashion swim and gym wear as well as supports female entrepreneurs getting their businesses off the ground in Africa, Asia and South America

  • Anything is Possible (AIP) - a startup marketing consultancy that specialises in data-driven, integrated communications who are developing a business model around people, planet and profit

Entrepreneurs, investors, directors, specialists, and any other social impact enthusiast. If you work in the business sector and want to be inspired and learn from other businesses who are purpose-led, come and connect with like-minded people over some drinks and nibbles and leave inspired with ideas on how to use business as a force for good.
