Between November 11-14, leaders and change makers from all over the world will gather together to share social business ideas and strategies in Brisbane as part of the G20 Innovation Hub.

It will be a festival of interaction and education, full of real world examples of social outcomes and existing symbiotic relationships between business, government and community.

Presented by Wise Foundation and Social Outcomes, this event is all about showing what social enterprises are operating in Brisbane, nationally and internationally with really positive outcomes. Look out for all the great free events and the fabulous TOMS Pop Up shop.

The Wise Foundation believes that all people and communities should have the opportunity to achieve economic independence through business. Their core mission is: ‘To strengthen communities through assisting the creation of innovative economic models.’
