Crunch Time 2011
Thursday, 19th May 2011 at 10:49 am
The Crunch is an opportunity to turn a social enterprise idea into reality by providing participants with business planning support and the opportunity to pitch for investment from Social Traders’ Social Enterprise Development Fund.
Social traders says Crunch participants are guided through a rigorous business planning process, developed specially for social enterprise, and supported by a business mentoring team.
The Crunch was first launched in 2010, when nine social enterprise ideas were selected from 79 applications. Five of the nine Crunch Enterprises went onto receive investment offers from the Social Traders’ Social Enterprise Development Fund totaling $702,000.
Social Traders is a small Not for Profit organisation established in 2008 to support and encourage the establishment of commercially viable social enterprises throughout Australia.
Social Traders was seed funded by the Victorian Government and a private Foundation.
To apply, attend a Crunch Application Workshop between 1 and 22 June and then make a submission by 6 July 2011.
