It’s going be a massive pitchfest at Pause Fest 2016. Partnering with Social Traders, an expert in social enterprise capacity building with the ability to cater for all types of social enterprises, Pause Fest will host a 90-minute pitch session for all enterprising social start-ups that are looking to build upon their base.

The session will give participants the opportunity to present their business model and social impact in 90 seconds and pitch their social enterprise idea to a panel of business and technology experts.

The top five participating teams will be handpicked to join the Social Traders Crunch program, Australia’s leading enterprise development program, and there are some prizes up for grabs too.

But let us get the definition of social enterprise right first. Social enterprises are businesses that exist primarily to benefit the public at large, rather than their shareholders and owners. In essence, they are commercially viable businesses with a purpose of generating social impact.

Social Traders has been working closely with over 100 such social enterprises over the past five years, including creative consulting business Co Design Studio and Renew Australia, providing a range of capacity building programs to support the enterprises’ journeys, from start-up to securing investment, growth and accessing new market opportunities.
