This workshop introduces participants to the fundamentals of starting a social enterprise, covering an introduction to the for-purpose ecosystem, tools to design for impact, business model components, establishing feasibility and case studies from different industries. A guest speaker from a local Blue Mountains social enterprise will share their journey towards the launch of their business, and a Q & A will enable all participants to enquire further about challenges and solutions. The workshop’s aim is to lower barriers to taking steps towards establishing a successful business with a social purpose.
