Matt Allen will be sharing his background as a young entrepreneur and experience managing a range of non-profts over the past 10 years at the Social Traders Masters Conference.
Ahead of the event, Matt has also shared three things he’d like to see in the future of social enterprise development.
1. Experimentation with different structures and decision-making styles that empower people with the tools to change their own lives.
2. The development of stringent and transparent standards for social enterprise certification.
3. Social enterprises at a global scale, reducing the market share and influence of multinational for-profit firms.
