Podcast: How to Social Enterprise – Scale
14 February 2017 at 8:30 am

Social entrepreneurs may dream of changing the world, but to make a dent in the most pressing social and environmental issues, they need to achieve scale. Find out how in the final episode of our three-part series.

Scale is one of the hardest challenges a social enterprise will face. Even the most successful entrepreneurs have struggled to grow their operations and impact.

In the final How to Social Enterprise episode, Not for Podcast speaks to a handful of these entrepreneurs about how they achieved scale.

From finance to business models to grassroots campaigns, they all have a unique story and different lessons to pass on.

But they all agree that, at every point in the social enterprise journey, an entrepreneur should plan for scale.

Featured in this episode:

  • Jamie Green, founder of ONE NIGHT STAND
  • Rebecca Scott, CEO and co-founder of STREAT  
  • Adam Makepeace, senior manager, employment and training services at 180 Painting Services
  • Daniel Flynn, co-founder and managing director of Thankyou.

If you missed the first two episodes of the How to Social Enterprise series, Motivations and Skills, catch up here.

Produced by Ellie Cooper and Wendy Williams, brought to you by Social Ventures Australia.
