Imagine a world where charity and business come together. Where making money and doing good are the same thing. This is the world of social enterprise. A social enterprise is an organisation that makes intentional positive social or environmental impacts using a sustainable business model, it can be a for-profit or not-for-profit. Essentially it performs trade (sell services or goods) and is sustainable (generates profit to cover their costs and expand).
Social Enterprise Collective is a community of young change makers and go getters who are passionate, innovative and entrepreneurial. If you want to learn more, or already have launched your startup come along to our Social Entrepreneurship Conference this May.
Hear from Melbourne’s prominent young change makers. An amazing opportunity to authentically connect, indulge in meaningful conversations and hear from inspirational speakers who have made a difference.
We believe in creating a better world utilising the tools of business. University is the perfect platform to embrace your inner entrepreneur and make a real difference, whether you want to support campaigns or startup your own social enterprise – join our community of thought leaders, hustlers and dreamers.
To instill young visionaries, change makers and innovators with the required business acumen and skill set to tackle social issues.
