Sustainable Social Enterprises: Hands-On How to Get Started (or Accelerate!)

This will be a highly interactive session, allowing in-depth collaboration between actual practitioners and attendees as you work on your own plan for a new and/or accelerated Sustainable Social Enterprise that is well-integrated with your current ministry. You will learn some keys to success as well as lessons learned from mistakes and then you will develop your ideas in a roundtable format where you will receive feedback and guidance from experienced practitioners — ultimately walking out with an action plan and clear next steps!
