what we do

Social enterprise study tour


Is it for me?  The Study Tours provide an opportunity for people engaged or interested in social enterprise to hear from key social enterprise practitioners, giving in depth and practical insight into its establishment, development and operations. These informal and engaging tours are a fabulous opportunity for networking, knowledge-sharing and discussion.

How will it benefit me?  This is a golden opportunity to see the real life workings – the good, bad and the ugly – of a running social enterprise. You will get to ask questions directly to the manager of the enterprise, so come prepared with the all the issues that’s been on your mind.

What’s covered?  The study tour will feature four different social enterprises, covering a range of industries and motivations.

Format:  This is a full-day tour from 9am to 5pm. Unless otherwise stated, all tours start and end at the Social Traders office at Level 2, 136 Exhibition Street, Melbourne.The tour includes transportation to all social enterprise locations, and lunch provided by a social enterprise.

Tours number no more than 12 people. We also reserve the right to cancel the tour if fewer than 5 people are registered one week before tour date, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
