Positive Impact.

The Social Enterprise Spotlight Series recognises our community for their great contributions to society and their tireless efforts to achieve positive impact through the work they do.

By highlighting social enterprises, we are showcasing the owners behind the enterprises that are generating social impact. It’s an opportunity to showcase their passion and entrepreneurial spirit, which in turn highlights the work they do.
