Social Traders’ Crunch Supporting Young Social Entrepreneurs

July 4, 2017

Last updated on March 2, 2018

We’re currently looking for two young social enterprise leaders to take part in Social Traders’ Crunch start-up accelerator with two youth places available, fully funded by the Victorian Government. This is a great opportunity for young social entrepreneurs looking to grow and develop a start-up.

Social Traders’ Crunch provides the business skills to build sustainable social enterprises. Participants work with the Social Traders’ team as well as business and start up mentors, to test, measure and build a robust business model for their social enterprise over eighteen weeks of the accelerator program.

Over the last six years, Social Traders’ Crunch has worked with over 88 social enterprises, 60% of which are still trading today.
