Learn about social and environmental impact and how entrepreneurs are using their startups as a tool to make the world a better place.


Delivered online by entrepreneurial experts every Tuesday from February 2nd to March 2nd 6.30pm until 7.30pm, these engaging seminars provide hands-on tips and advice you can actually apply to your own social enterprise or business. Plenty of time for questions and answers too!
