Today in the UK is Social Enterprise Day, so we thought we'd introduce you to one of the Social Enterprises based here at Bucks Biz.
First of all, what is Social Enterprise Day? Part of Global Entrepreneurship Week, Social Enterprise Day is a global digital campaign designed to give social enterprises the chance to tell their stories, show what makes them different from traditional businesses and shout about the impact of their work.
The campaign is all about highlighting the diversity in the sector across the globe and is an opportunity for all social enterprises to take part in a public facing campaign, as well as engaging their staff directly with their social enterprise mission. What better day then, to introduce you to Bucks Biz resident, Alter Ego Creative Solutions. Read on to find out all about them.
