The 6th Annual Oxford Business and Poverty Conference on Housing - Oxford
@75-81 High Street Historic South School, Examination School Oxford OX1 4BG
The 6th Annual Oxford Business and Poverty Conference will focus on housing. Day 1 of our conference will feature a diverse range of speakers addressing creative ways to meet the housing needs of low and moderate-income people - especially through mutuals and having residents and employees or employee-owners participate in various components of governance in housing organisations and companies. Day 2 of the conference will focus on a series of business proposals during which social enterprises will present their plans to investors and others who want to learn more. These proposals will hopefully lead to funding for the companies that want to build housing in Oxford, other parts of the UK, India and Zimbabwe.
