This three hour introductory workshop will explain what social enterprise is and what it’s not, then lead participants through an overview of the typical steps in an enterprise’s early development.
Anyone curious about social enterprise will benefit from this half-day session. Non-profit organizations considering the model and community or business developers wanting to expand their knowledge are particularly welcome.

Learning Objectives:

1. A clear understanding of what social enterprise is and is not
2. An understanding of typical exploration and development steps for social enterprise
3. A better sense of organizational readiness, and next steps
