Event description

South West Victoria Social Enterprise Showcase

Bringing together social enterprises, business, community organisations and governments located in Victoria’s South West region. The event will take place on the Peek Whurrong land of the Gunditjmara people, where we will also pay our respects to surrounding clans. 

Social Enterprises are businesses who trade to intentionally tackle social problems such as:

  • Supporting communities facing disadvantage,
  • Providing employment and training pathways or
  • Creating positive environmental impact.

The Give Where You Live Foundation's, GROW initiative invites you to join SENVIC and Social Traders, to discuss all things social enterprise, alongside local South West region social enterprises. This event is delivered in collaboration with our regional partners, the South West Community Foundation, and is ideal for all emerging and current social enterprises and organisations with a vested interest in the social enterprise sector.

Let’s talk about how we can create social impact through business!

We will share practical information about social enterprise certification and insights into the current social enterprise landscape. This will also be an opportunity to network with like-minded individuals and make new business connections.
