On Tuesday 19th March, EDAS will be holding its third of three half-day discussion events on the topic of inclusive growth, supported by the Scottish Government, Dundee City Council and Scottish Enterprise. 

This event, on Business Models for Inclusive Growth, will include a presentation and discussion on three models that promote sustainable and inclusive growth, including Social Enterprise, B-Corp and Employee Ownership. 

Following the presentations there will be some facilitated discussion sessions so that attendees can feed-in their own experiences, and to discuss any obstacles that might exist.
