Run by Social Traders, the fund covers the costs for 63 social enterprise leaders, including Good360 Australia, Pollinate Energy and The Big Issue, to participate in this year’s Social Enterprise World Forum in New Zealand.

The forum, taking place in September 2017, is designed to bring together social enterprise leaders from across the world to discuss how to create a more socially inclusive future.

Social Traders’ social enterprise managing director David Brookes said he was pleased to assist Australian social entrepreneurs build networks and develop their skills.

“We received a terrific amount of interest for the bursary fund applications and are really pleased that through this process we’re able to provide such a unique learning and networking opportunity for the next wave of Australia’s future social enterprise leaders,” Brookes said.
