social enterprises that can be found in the city centre. It’s great
to see one of our members developing an excellent product which
creates added value for other members and raises awareness of social
enterprise as an ethical business model”.
Claire Pattullo, CEO, Edinburgh Social Enterprise
our work at Invisible Cities, we have realised that the public is
even more curious and eager to discover what social enterprises are
and what they do. We get many request for me to speak to groups about
our work, or for us to take people around a variety of organisations.
That is why we decided to create this tour. And if we can highlight
other great organisations along the way, it is even better!”
