The Paths to Social Enterprise

location XCHC | 5:30 PM-7:30 PM Friday 22 January 2016 (NZDT)

Social Enterprise Double Shot Session

Ministry of Awesome hosts this Social Enterprise Ōtautahi gathering as part of the XCHC Friday events featuring: Margaret Jefferies (Project Lyttelton) and Brianne West (Ethique). This session will provide us with perspectives on various paths to Social Enterprise.

Margaret Jefferies is a catalyst for social change. She is part of the community group, Project Lyttelton. Margaret sees developing social enterprises as a path for creating community resilience. Project Lyttelton and four other NFPs are collectively engaged in setting up a social enterprise within the city. She will talk about where they are at in this process.

Ethique founder, Brianne West, started her first natural skincare company when she was 19. Ethique was launched in 2012 while she was a second-year student of biology and chemistry at University of Canterbury. Disillusioned with the amount of wasted packaging and ineffective natural products on the market, Brianne started a company that would show the world what she already discovered with her first shampoo bar – that solid products can be sensational! She recently completed a successful equity crowdfunding campaign and is now a certified B-Corporation, the third in Christchurch.

Bar opens at 5:00pm, discussion starts at 6:00pm. Come along and enjoy a great evening with us! Nibbles provided.
