Brisbane Social Enterprise is a place where social entrepreneurs and supporters of social enterprise can meet, network, do business, and share stories in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Social Enterprises are businesses that operate for a social purpose and are:
• Are led by an economic, social, cultural, or environmental mission consistent with a public or community benefit
• Trade to fulfil their mission
• Derive a substantial proportion of their income from trade
• Reinvest the majority of their surplus in the fulfilment of their mission
(adapted from Dr Ingrid Burkett's 'typology')
This Meetup Group is run by The Queensland Social Enterprise Council, which is a democratically representative organisation promoting social enterprise in Queensland. You do not have to be a member of QSEC to attend our Meetups - all are welcome.
