Resilient Scotland is pleased to announce a package of investment to Firstport for their social franchise concept, Ditto. Ditto is an off the shelf product that helps people set up and run a social enterprise using tried and tested business models, from pre-loved baby goods shops to community cafes.
Resilient Scotland, which provides investment packages to enterprising community organisations to drive local regeneration, is delighted to announce the appointment of Mike Grigor as its new Chair.
Increasingly, social enterprises are seeking investment to develop their businesses and are looking for alternative means to raise the capital they require. There has been an increasing willingness for these organisations to consider a social investment, one that offers the funder both a social and financial return, rather than taking the traditional grant funding route.
