B Set for success as you start your social enterprise
As an advocate of business being used as a force for good, we’re proud to offer social enterprises the start-up and compliance services you need to B Set at reduced rates.
We know that everyone starts differently, so we have designed a range of packages you can mix and match depending on what’s most important to your social enterprise.
These services have been tailored specifically for purpose-driven start ups, so in order to take advantage of our packages, your business must fit our definition of a social enterprise – as articulated by Social Traders:
Social enterprises are businesses that trade to intentionally tackle social problems, improve communities, provide people access to employment and training, or help the environment. Using the power of the marketplace to solve the most pressing societal problems, social enterprises are commercially viable businesses existing to benefit the public and the community, rather than shareholders and owners.
In the Australian context, there is no legal structure called social enterprise but we define social enterprise as organisations that:
- Are driven by a public or community cause, be it social, environmental, cultural or economic
- Derive most of their income from trade, not donations or grants
- Use the majority (at least 50%) of their profits to work towards their social mission
