A NEW DAWN HAS BEGUN

Social enterprises are illuminating new ways of doing business where profits and social impact go hand in hand.

In today’s  business landscape, Pacific business owners and entrepreneurs with a ‘heart to make a difference’ can leverage the social enterprise movement to maximise what they are doing . It is a business model that places the well-being of family, community and society at the center of its mission.  These enterprises are not only driven by financial profits, but by social, environmental and cultural impact as well.

The Social enterprise movement  is a circuit breaker.

It has created new pathways for  community change makers innovating within their community to step into the business realm and set up  income generating ventures helping to solve community problems and to meet real needs.
