'Starting a Social Enterprise' is an introductory workshop to learn about social enterprise as a vehicle to create positive social and environmental change in your community. This workshop is suitable for any individuals and organisations interested in social enterprise.

This workshop will cover:
- What is social enterprise?
- What do you need to be successful?
- Starting with your social or environmental purpose
- Business models for social enterprise and how to start developing one
- Where to from here?

This is an interactive workshop that includes learning from Ākina's experienced facilitators (travelling from Wellington), as well as practical work and peer learning. You'll be in a room with other like-minded people, get inspired, and know how to move forward.

The Ākina Foundation is growing social enterprise across New Zealand.
Our mission is to grow the emerging New Zealand social enterprise sector by:
• Activating talent, raising awareness and building capability for social enterprise
• Supporting social enterprises to grow and increase their impact, and
• Developing new market and investment opportunities for social enterprise.

Our vision is for a sustainable, prosperous and inclusive world.
Our name, Ākina, is a Māori word meaning a call for bold action. It also conveys a spirit of watchful and
active encouragement, helping others to identify pathways through their challenges.

We believe social entrepreneurs and social enterprise represents a powerful opportunity to build a new
economy that regenerates the environment and creates social foundations for people to thrive.
The people who work for Ākina are in service to those who strive to realise a sustainable, prosperous and inclusive world.

In support of social enterprise, we call for bold action, we lead by example, and we commit to our values: being honest, ambitious, determined, ingenious, collaborative, and humble.
