Cooma workshop - introduction to social enterprises

Attention: open in a new window. Print

On Wednesday 15 May 2019, the Mill House is coming to Cooma to help educate locals about social enterprises and social entrepreneurialship as part of a special workshop.

There’s a new and exciting category of business that’s on the up in Australia and across the globe.

Businesses that:

  • are driven by a public or community cause – be it social, environmental, cultural or economic
  • derive most of their income from trade, not donation or grants, and
  • use the majority of their profits to work towards their social mission. 

These social enterprises exist to Do Good. And just as SERVICE ONE is a social enterprise, we have a vested interest in seeing more socially-conscious businesses in our region develop and thrive.

And that’s precisely why we’re now bringing the Mill House to Cooma. We helped establish this social enterprise accelerator program and our social impact guru Cindy Mitchell is hosting a special two hour workshop to not only lift awareness of social enterprises more broadly, but hopefully inspire local social entrepreneurs. Social entrepreneurs who may be passionate about fixing or improving a community issue, who may have a broad idea about making a positive difference, but who need assistance in realising a tangible social business that will help get them there. The Mill House is designed to nurture and support social enterprises and this workshop will help detail what this support can look like.

Event details are as follows:
