Many young social enterprises in the circular economy and sustainable fashion have the ambition to partner with large companies – a long, complicated process. Collaborating with medium-sized companies is an often overlooked opportunity, even though it can be a more attractive option for growing your business and impact. As a medium-sized company, teaming up with innovative social enterprises can help you build sustainable products. However, finding the right partners to engage with can be challenging.
In our session, we invite social entrepreneurs and medium-sized companies from the Dutch manufacturing industry to join us for an interactive session to uncover the secrets of successful partnerships. As a social entrepreneur, you will also learn to speak the language of medium-sized companies from this industry and use this in your sales strategy.
As a medium-sized company, you can meet innovative entrepreneurs and explore potential collaborations.
After this session:
1) The social entrepreneur better understands the attractive opportunities collaboration with medium-sized companies can bring.
2) The social entrepreneur has started to develop a medium-sized company sales strategy.
3) Social entrepreneurs and medium-sized company owners/teams both join the session and make new connections
