Event description

Come and join Brisbane's social enterprise community for an insightful day tour exploring a range of social enterprises across the city. You'll jump aboard a bus with 15 high potential social enterprises currently taking part in Impact Boom's Elevate+ Accelerator Program, (which is proudly supported by Brisbane City Council), alongside other Elevate+ Alumni, purpose-led founders, social business leaders and all-round good people doing great things in government and academia.

Impact Boom have partnered with the Yunus Social Business Centre (Griffith University) to create this opportunity, not only to hear from the founders of a range of social enterprises at various stages of development, but to see what's happening on the ground, expand your network and learn from others.
