Join us for a bespoke programme to understand the practice of strategically incorporating social impact into your business, such that impact creation becomes a value creator, not a cost centre.

Through this programme, you'll learn how Social Enterprises are committed to a double bottom line of intentional social impact creation and sustainable financial returns. You’ll also gain a better understanding of the Social Enterprise ecosystem and how you can contribute and work with key stakeholders.

Through the sharing of raiSE’s toolkits, insights, and case studies developed from our deep engagement with hundreds of Social Enterprises, startups, SMEs and Social Service Agencies over the years, participants will learn strategies to plan, implement and measure social impact via a sustainable business model.
