For Organizations

Sessions

Social Enterprise 101 runs every month and can be attended in person or online through a webinar stream. Throughout this session social enterprise is defined, business models are reviewed and a series of existing social enterprises explored.

Participate in the new senco Series to take your first steps in building out a business based on impact, to prototype a new product or service, or to build the framework for a social enterprise using core concepts from the Flourishing Business Model Canvas. Each of the three Series has a different focus and each Series also has three session, or as we are calling them Colabs. Series 1 will tackle Ideation and Feasibility, Series 2 will dive into the Flourishing Business Model Canvas, and Series 3 is focused on Pitching, Scaling and Impact Measurement.
