Who in invests in what and why?

Join this panel discussion with Kieran Daly, Head of Market Building, Social Investment Scotland, Kieran has a wealth of experience in supporting organisations to become sustainable and grow with a focus on delivering impact. This is your chance to hear from a key panel of sector experts with the experience of providing money and those who have benefitted from it. What and who are funders working with? What is their key focus? Why are they successful at accessing funds?

Through our discussion, we will help bring this to life for you by talking about the range of organisations that receive funding or investment and why. There’s always that fundamental question of “How much do you need?” and “How much can I get?” – you need to fully understand what you need and why.

Kieran will be joined by Jo Karatzidis, Lead Fund Manager, Social Investment Scotland, Sam Moir, Manager, Community Support, Zero Waste Scotland and Ceila Joicey, Director, Dovecot
