Sub Urban is launching a social enterprise scholarship which will provide a local person with support to grow their social impact idea into a business. The person will be from the northern suburbs of Wellington and Ideally the enterprise will benefit local communities.
Funded through the Sub Urban Business Meetup, the scholarship will be put into play one of Sub Urban’s key missions which is to enable local businesses to build enterprise capacity in their local communities.
At this stage the scholarship will include a place to work and a business community to belong to (at least 1 day per week of co-working), mentoring, networking and business courses offered through Sub Urban and other networks for a period of up to 6 months.
We want to make sure that this scholarship is a model of good practice - both in the processes that we set up to manage it and how it works on the ground.
If you would like to feed into the process of developing the scholarship programme we would love to hear from you. Please email Kathleen@suburban.org.nz if you are interested.
