Connecting buyers with social enterprises

Procurement in Australia is estimated to be approximately $600 billion. For every $100,000 spent on social procurement 1.5 jobs are created for disadvantaged Australians.

We make introductions, host networking events, and work with corporate and government buyers to update their tender processes to open new opportunities for social enterprises.

Buying from social enterprise represents the greatest untapped potential in generating positive, sustainable social impact.
