Shift.ed * Impact Venture Series

December 13, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Shift.ed Venture Impact Series

We know you give a Shift.

You’ve dedicated time, energy and money to a purpose that’s worth your investment. You’re willing to work hard for it, and you’re committed to making a difference. And just like any business, you’re driven by goals and success.

Whether you’re the founder of a social enterprise, work within an NFP or you’re just an aspiring Good Samaritan, those goals are likely to be different to other businesses. After all you’re motivated by a cause, which means your bottom line isn’t the money you make but the impact you make.

Shift.ed’s purpose is to equip the people behind SA’s social enterprises with the skills, tools, networks and strategies that will help them do good business, while doing good.

The Shift.ed Impact Venture Series

Each monthly masterclass will focus on an aspect of business, geared toward social enterprise. The sessions will incorporate guest speakers, networking and skill sharing into one toolkit you can apply to your venture or workplace.

Who is Shift.ed for?

Shift.ed is affordable, fits in with your busy schedule and contains content that is useful for everyone, no matter the organisation.

The platform is perfect for people or groups who are:

  • Founders of a social enterprise
  • Working or volunteering within a social enterprise
  • Founders of a NFP
  • Working or volunteering within a NFP
  • In the research stage of setting up their own social enterprise or similar
  • Incorporating a purpose-driven program or offering into an existing business
  • Supporting for-purpose through their organisation

If you don’t know where you fit into this list but you’d still like to join, go right ahead. You’ll learn skills that will be useful in many aspects of your life. Still unsure? Reach out to us, email rachael.hetherington@flinders.edu.au and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

Shift.ed values inclusivity and welcomes all ethnicities, races, sexual orientations, religions and physical abilities.
