Social Enterprise Drive

The 2023 Social Economy Drive website is now live! Book your events now to avoid disappointment as many have limited capacity.

The Social Economy Drive has had a few name changes (formerly known as CityDrive, also formerly known as the Social Enterprise Drive) but it is a celebration of all businesses with social value and takes place every November.

Now in it’s 10th year, the Social Economy Drive is one of our favourite events across the iSE calendar –  a dynamic week of events showcasing the amazing Social Enterprises we have around the West Midlands region.

This week long programme of events is designed to showcase the sector in all of its innovative, dedicated and impactful glory.

The Social Economy Drive is built around five ‘calls to action’ designed to raise awareness and showcase Social Enterprise:
