Dan Gregory

Dan has a considerable range of experience of funding and financing mutual and social enterprises, through developing policy at the highest level and delivering in practice at the grassroots. He has worked for the Treasury, Futurebuilders England, the Cabinet Office and in delivering the Department of Health’s Social Enterprise Investment Fund at Local Partnerships. He has also worked in France and Germany, and in Brussels on Corporate Social Responsibility. He founded the world’s first pop-up think tank – POPse!

Dan has led the development of a number of pioneering developments in practice, including supporting business planning and development of around 50 Right to Request staff-led public sector ‘spin-outs’. He authored The Right to Run, a practical guide for public sector staff thinking about setting up a mutual or social enterprise, the NCVO Commission’s Report on Tax Incentives for Social Investment, HM Treasury’s Guidance to Funders and Purchasers and Cabinet Office’s Consultation on the Social Investment Bank.

Dan has recently been working at a policy level on behalf of NCVO, ClearlySo, Social Enterprise UK, ResPublica, NCVYS and Social Finance. He has worked on the practical challenges facing spin-outs with Mutual Ventures, the Baxi Partnership and Stepping Out. He works at a more local level with Meanwhile Space CIC, Pop-Up Bristol, Wiltshire Councils and youth charities. He is also part of a TSRC-funded academic team exploring the nature of innovation in public service spin-outs. He spends some of his time as Director of Policy for Social Enterprise UK and the Social Economy Alliance.
