If you’re passionate about creating positive social and environmental impact, our handpicked content is all you need to stay informed and inspired. For the fortnight starting 7/12/2020…

1. Free B Corp Short Course

Torrens University in partnership with B Lab Australia & New Zealand presents a free short course providing an introduction to the B Corp movement. This course is designed for people who want to find out more about the values, processes and standards that underpin the global Certified B Corporation (B Corp) movement.

2. Easy Recurring Crowdfunding – Now Live!

StartSomeGood, Australia’s leading crowdfunding platform for social enterprises and impact projects, has just launched a major upgrade to their platform, allowing community benefit organisations of all sorts and sizes to easily set up and launch ongoing Recurring Crowdfunding campaigns. Recurring Crowdfunding is ongoing and therefore allows you to build dedicated ongoing supporter communities, whether donors or customers.

3. The RISE Program

Social Impact Hub, Westpac Foundation and Social Traders are collaborating with leading corporates to offer pro bono business support to social enterprises to help them through the COVID-19 crisis. Social enterprises have the opportunity to be supported by experts in areas such as business strategy, accessing government financial support, managing human resources and legal support, based on their business needs. This support will be provided for over 3-6 months. Don’t miss out.

4. Australian Small Business Awards

The Australian Small Business Awards (ASBA) is a national recognition program open to small businesses in all States and Territories throughout Australia. The Awards give small businesses new opportunities to expand their horizons by generating exposure and building stronger networks. For many business owners and managers, taking time out to reflect on their achievements is paramount to their future goals.
