SASEC first social enterprise bus tour to shine the light on our own local social enterprises here in the western region of Adelaide.
This event is in association with the Social Enterprise World Forum being held in Brisbane, Australia in September 2022! SEWF is the flagship event for the global social enterprise community, providing space for purpose-led people, policymakers, philanthropists, intermediaries and entrepreneurs to connect, learn and be inspired. You'll hear from Tom Allen of Impact Boom and the Social Enterprise World Forum Advisory Board as he reflects on his experiences and learnings from the growth of the social enterprise environment in Queensland.Meet the founders and leaders of a range of social enterprises at various stages of development, see what’s happening on the ground, expand your network and learn from others about business for good.
This tour is a unique learning and networking opportunity and will give you ample opportunity to ask questions, connect with others interested in supporting social enterprises and touch, feel, taste and see some of the enterprises in action.
