HUME SOCIAL ENTERPRISE NETWORK
The Hume Social Enterprise Network is an initiative of the Hume Local Leads project.
The Network is in its infancy, and aims to:
provide opportunities for networking and support for social enterprise practitioners
provide opportunities for those interested in social enterprise to learn more about what's happening in the region
provide advocacy for the regional social enterprises
offer formal and informal learning in areas such as marketing, business planning, and starting a social enterprise
In 2021 we held two networking events: one face to face in Beechworth in between COVID lockdowns and an online event held later in the year.
The event in Beechworth was held at the Old Beechworth Gaol, a social enterprise managed by ACRE (Australian Centre for Rural Entrepreneurship). The catering and waiting was provided by Dumu Balcony Cafe, a social enterprise in Bright.
