What’s a Social Enterprise from an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspective?

On Thursday 31 October from 6-9pm  NCIE will host a panel discussion on this topic for Indigenous Business Month.

Developing strong Indigenous businesses is at the heart of financial success, economic independence, and cultural strength for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Social Enterprises are businesses that work for community.  They operate primarily for purpose, balancing financial viability and using the power of the marketplace to advance a cause or a community.

Indigenous social enterprises like any social enterprise – aim to deliver broad social impact to community beyond an individual or family.

Speakers at the panel will explore how social enterprises work in the Indigenous Business Landscape
