Social Impact Hub, with the support of the Paul Ramsay Foundation and Westpac Foundation, are collaborating with leading corporates to offer pro bono business support to help social enterprises through this time.
RISE is a collaboration drawing on the skills of corporate Australia, including Westpac, MinterEllison, Boston Consulting Group, KPMG and others, with employees volunteering their time to provide pro bono business support. Members of the Social Impact Hub’s Professional Impact Network and the CAST Professionals network are also providing low bono or pro bono support for eligible social enterprises.
To be eligible to access RISE your enterprise must:
- be operating in Australia;
- be sourcing or working towards sourcing the majority of its revenue through trade of socially or environmentally sustainable products or services rather than through grants, donations; and,
- have a mission to directly address social, cultural or environmental needs through the trade of goods and services rather than indirectly through socially responsible practices
Social enterprises will 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 over 3-6 months. Don’t miss out. Apply now.
