Paul Anthony Jones:
"This is a major element in the funding of ESS enterprise. It is a complex area with a range of financial instruments available to support ESS enterprises. Social investment can come from specialist social investment firms, from banks, from trusts and foundations. It can also come from individuals through such organisations as Clearly Social Angels (https://www.clearlyso.com/investors/clearly-social-angels/) , Community Chest (http://communitychest.co.uk/big-society-capital/) or Crowdfunder (http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/) .
There are many organisations that could be approached to speak on social investment – including Big Society Capital (https://www.bigsocietycapital.com/), Social Investment Scotland (http://www.socialinvestmentscotland.com/)."
