What is Social Entrepreneurship?

Statement of Faith
You can find other “Market with Meaning” but you definitely want to see “Profit with Purpose”.
I personally “Believe in Kingdom Transformation” because I know there is only ONE “Life for Significant”.

Participants will be introduced to a wide range of established and successful social franchisors working in the private and third sectors to understand and overcome the challenges of growing and replicating a social enterprise.

It is packed full of information, practical tools and useful case studies of varied replication models- get your copy!
