Blue banner reads SOCAL ENTERPRISE REGIONAL SHOWCASE Geelong, Tuesday 6 February 2024. Logos for Social Traders, Give Where you Live Foundation and Grow G21 Region on the right hand side.

Social Traders are partnering with Give Where You Live Foundation, to personally invite you to attend a social enterprise networking opportunity in the Geelong region!

Did you know more than 120 business and government organisations have caught on and are already leading the charge in business for good?

Bringing together social enterprise, business and government located in Geelong, this showcase will provide insight into the current social enterprise landscape, social procurement activity on local projects, and you will also have the chance to meet like-minded individuals and make new connections.

Organisations across Australia are exploring innovative new approaches to achieving social objectives through social procurement. Buying from a social enterprise is one of the most effective ways of breaking the cycle of disadvantage and strengthening regional Australian communities.

Featured topics include:

  • How social enterprise is one of the most impactful ways to do business,
  • the regional challenges and opportunities to social procurement,
  • how you can take advantage of social procurement opportunities as a social enterprise, or
  • increase your social procurement spend as a business or government organisation
