Built To Give Back

A World of Social Enterprise

1500 passionate people from around the world got together in Christchurch at the end of September to discuss how we can combine business solutions and community knowledge to look at how we can use innovative solutions to solve tricky problems.

The event was packed with inspirational speakers, one of our favourite quotes from the three-day forum came from Jan Owen, of the Foundation for Young Australians.

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”

To help this event come alive and deliver long-lasting change for the attendees, Kiwibank supported the Mentor Bar – a space where people could drop in and get advice from a range of experienced business professionals – from bankers to lawyers, logistics to wellbeing.

The 2017 Social Enterprise World Forum was held in Christchurch on 27-29 September. interested in the world of social enterprise? Find more businesses built to give back
