The ACT Social Enterprise Hub provides business development support to community organisations or social entrepreneurs that want to develop a social enterprise to create employment for people excluded from the labour market.

The ACT Social Enterprise Hub provides business and support services to accelerate the growth of social enterprises through networking opportunities and access to resources that would not otherwise be available or affordable.  These may include:

  • Business development – support to organisations to enable them to start up or increase their sustainability;
  • Procurement support – advice and guidance on tendering for government or commercial contracts;
  • Impact evaluation – annual tracking of the growth, performance and impact of your social enterprise;
  • Pro bono support –  access to mentoring and pro bono support from a range of corporate partners.

Combined, these services are aimed at transforming enterprises into robust and sustainable entities delivering social benefits and employment.

Public, private and non-profit organisations can play an important role in supporting social enterprise development within the ACT community through pro bono support, procurement opportunities, business mentoring or investment.

The ACT Social Enterprise would like to thank the following organisations who play a crucial role in providing pro bono services, support and investment to social enterprises in Canberra.
