Alternative business models and the funding mix

Alternative Business Models and the Funding Mix

Communities are increasingly taking leading roles in acquiring and restoring heritage assets as part of wider high street regeneration schemes.

However, the business case for such projects can often be marginal, which requires communities to explore alternative business models and funding sources to ensure such developments are commercially viable. This workshop will draw on a series of case studies to showcase alternative business models and funding opportunities, with a focus on the growing use of social finance and community shares.

At this event we will hear a case study from Dinah McDonald, trustee of Historic Kilmun, who will talk about their journey to taking ownership, building repairs, fundraising and the current focus of becoming sustainable.
