Emerging Issues in Grant-Making, Part 2: The Social Enterprise Explosion

One of the big questions facing philanthropic foundations, and civil society in general, is what implications the new trend of social entrepreneurship has for the work of social change. In this session, “The Social Enterprise Explosion: What Might it Mean for Foundation Funding?” trustees, staff and practitioners began exploring some if these implications, and some of the big rewards that can come from shifting away from traditional welfare-based social action.

The podcast below captures an introduction by David Harrison, DGMT’s CEO, on social enterprise; and a talk by Dr. Andrew Venter from the Wildlands Conservation Trust on the work they are doing in the social enterprise space through their Indigenous Trees for Life programme.
