HERE'S WHAT TO EXPECT!
Everyone gets one minute to pitch their idea to the entire group. This is your starting point but by the end of the two days you would have significantly built up from here
This is where the real examination and hard work begins. Your idea or organisation is put through a rigorous process to assess the elements of getting you to the framework of a social enterprise. At this stage things become very real and you are pushed out of your comfort zone.

Experienced coaches and mentors work with you to put you through a hands-on build process to help you chart the steps for testing and developing the most effective model for your social enterprise

REVIEW & REFINE
