The Journey to Social Enterprise
Categories: ALL THE NEWS , Enterprise
Trialogue pre-conference workshop-The funding landscape is becoming increasingly competitive in South Africa, as it is globally.
In response, many non-profits are looking for ways to generate income in order to decrease their reliance on donor funding and become more financially sustainable and independent.
Social enterprise provides a viable alternative to donor dependency, enabling social purpose organisations to achieve long-term social impact that is not reliant on annual grant applications. At the same time, businesses are looking at how they can play a positive role in society by tackling the social and environmental challenges that exist in the communities in which they operate.
Social enterprise is an innovative model that can empower entrepreneurs and non-profit organisations to design business solutions to social problems, enabling sustainable and systemic change to take place.
This workshop, which will be presented by Social Enterprise Academy, is aimed at non-profit managers who are considering transitioning to increased income generation, entrepreneurs who want to find out more about the social enterprise movement and model, and corporates who are interested in how they can address social and environmental challenges through the medium of social enterprise.
