Social Enterprise Unconference – Levin – 15 – 17 February 2019


PledgeMe has teamed up with Thankyou Payroll to deliver Aotearoa New Zealand’s first unconference focussed on social enterprise. The event was created to support growing and scaling social enterprises to help each other and build a network for them to grow their impact together.

We know how tiring it is to balance social impact and financial value creation, so we think by learning from each other, we can make this journey a little less lonely and little bit easier.

What is an Unconference? It’s a weekend long residential event that’s more about having awesome people in the room rather than watching speakers on a stage. The agenda is set on the first night by the attendees, where you decide what you want to share and discuss over the weekend, and the event is all about you meeting, connecting, sharing, and learning.

The Social Enterprise Unconference 2019 will be for the people behind social enterprises that have been trading for a few years that want support to take their business to the next level. Off the back of a busy year for everyone, we are excited to get a group together to discuss what’s next for the sector, learn from each other, and hopefully realise we’re not in this alone.

We’re aiming to have a diverse group of attendees that represent the broad spectrum of social enterprise in Aotearoa. To ensure that everyone has the time and space to have meaningful interactions, the number of attendees will be capped at 100. Because we’re limited on space, but know that we all benefit from the strength of a diverse group, we will be selecting attendees based on a range of criteria, however if we have more applicants than spots, we will give preference to those who get their registration form sent in quickly.
