The idea of social enterprise was initially a measure to assist the socially vulnerable groups, and it has since grown into a business model that pursues different social goals. While the number of social enterprise continues to grow, the scope of social enterprise also becomes diversified. This somehow provides another path to potential business starters. Apart from enthusiasm, it is also necessary for a social enterprise to operate properly. In this workshop, our guest speaker will explain how to effectively set up and operate a social enterprise in terms of preparation, financing and development.
