Event description

Description

Looking to apply your research skills and knowledge for social benefit? Interested in social ventures but don’t know where to start?

The ANU Technology Transfer Office is hosting the Social Enterprise Bootcamp, a full-day workshop for those looking to translate your research into social impact.

This workshop will:

  • Define the key elements of a social enterprise and provide you with an introduction to the business model canvas and social impact statements.
  • Introduce you to tools and techniques that you can apply to your own research project or early-stage social enterprise
  • Allow you to gain feedback on the commercialisation of your research from an expert in social enterprises.

Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided on the day.

The workshop is free, but registrations via Eventbrite are essential as spaces are strictly limited. Please note that this workshop is only open to HDR students, academics and professional staff at ANU.

Please allow 5 mins for the registration process as we will be asking you to describe a little about the project you are currently working on and what you are hoping to gain from the workshop. This will allow us to ensure the content developed for the workshop is relevant to you and your research project.

Who should attend

This workshop is best suited to any ANU researchers, HDR students or professional staff who already have an idea for a social venture or those who are interested in taking their research to market for social good.
