Event description

Connecting the dots for social impact...making it possible in the Region.

Come and join us on the Logan Social Enterprise Tour for an insightful day tour exploring a range of social enterprises across the region. You will jump aboard a bus with purpose-led founders, social business leaders and all-round good people doing great things in the community, government and academia.

The Social Enterprise Network Logan, the Yunus Social Business Centre (Griffith University) and Impact Boom created 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.

The day offers key presentations from Substation33, HELP Enterprises, SheEO and The Centre for Women and Co. A lunch and learn session features female led social enterprises - Mantua Sewing Studio, Her Platform and Mumma Got Skills. The day concludes with a panel discussion - Regional Social Impact and Learnings from the Ethiopian Social Enterprise World Forum at the Yunus Centre, Griffith University.
