Social Ventures Incubator Program


What is the Social Ventures Incubators Program?

The Social Ventures Incubator Program is a deep learning and development opportunity for early-stage social ventures, to develop their business models and impact to sustainably improve community life.

The program will work with up to 8 social ventures (individuals or teams of 2-3) to support the active development of their ventures through workshops, mentoring, peer-learning and digital platforms.

Our unique program will give you the knowledge and practical skills to develop, test and launch your social venture.  Practical sessions with experienced social entrepreneurs and business professionals will cover areas such as social impact, pitching, business planning, legal obligations and communications.
