Be counted in WA’s enterprise map if you have or are exploring a social/environmental impact business model, and want a representative voice for the sector, for impact investment and for social procurement across sustainability, regenerative/circular systems, disability, health or education targeting vulnerable Australians, Aboriginal cultural impact, community inclusion, homelessness or international development.
UPDATE 16 AUGUST: We have had over 140 respondents so far, but full representation of all organisations across the sector is very important in a project like this to ensure the ultimate report to WA Government reflects the totality of the sector. Please register if you identify as:
The Mapping Project will seek to understand the current and potential capacity of the social enterprise sector in WA for imperatives such as Impact Investment, Social procurement policy and enterprise accreditation, Development potential and capacity building, and measurement of the impact of the sector in the economy in terms of job creation potential and social/environmental outcomes
The project will also inform the creation of a WA Social Enterprise Council in conjunction with the Impact Investment Alliance of WA, launching in September 2019. The linkage of the Alliance and a new Council will create a link between funding sources and the sector, with the vision for the Social Enterprise Council being to:
If you are a WA headquartered AND primarily WA-focused enterprise (ie. you have a social/environmental impact business model, or a not for profit organisation looking to build or invest in a new social enterprise, then we would love to hear from you.
Please complete the submission below. The form takes around 5 minutes to complete, and we really appreciate your considered responses for this important project. SUBMISSIONS CLOSE FRIDAY 23-AUGUST.
