Social Enterprise / Venture Business Plan Competition
- Does anyone know where I can find a list of all of the business plan
competitions that target social enterprises or social ventures?
- In the spirit of sharing social enterprise sector knowledge, Nelson CARES Society's Earth Matters program is in the midst of developing a social enterprise which will be an eco retail store (physical and on-line) which will employ people with barriers to employment.
They are interested now in developing some policies around social enterprise - policies that will speak to their approach to healthy competition, directing profits, sales and service policies, and risk management.
Rona Park, the organization's Executive Director, seeks examples that may be amenable to incorporation into the development of their new social enterprise.
