What is a social enterprise and how do I find out more?

Social enterprises are companies like any other. Except, their existence orbits around the idea of helping the communities that surround them. Instead of focusing on the profits and the next paycheck, they improve financial, environmental and social well-being of external individuals.

Do you have an idea that will make the world a better place? In this two hour workshop we explore the different types of social enterprises out there.We will explore how each works and which will suit you best. Additionally, we will bust a range of myths surrounding the running of a social enterprise.
