Ignite 2012 : Residential

Ignite 2012 : Residential
Social Enterprise Academy

You are running a social enterprise full of potential. How can this potential be unlocked? Is it worth a weekend of your time to decide?


Join a group of 18 other social entrepreneurs to identify your key motivation, clarify your goals, explore your options, and plan the next steps to grow your organisation. You will leave with new understandings about your enterprise, yourself, and importantly, a plan to ignite your business.


Ignite has allowed us the time and support to develop and flesh out a future development plan. This has evolved significantly from what existed prior to Ignite.”  Andy Ross, New Caledonian Woodlands
