SEWF Roadtrip - Sydney to Brisbane

02 August 2022 2:49 PM | Anonymous

In Sydney and want to visit SEWF? This could be your chance.

Why Join the Roadtrip?

This is a chance to make the Social Enterprise World Forum so much more than a conference. Instead of just flying into Brisbane, travel with a group of founders, social enterprise supporters and sector thought leaders for two days of connecting, learning and preparing to make the most of the Brisbane Summit!

The two-day journey will give you plenty of time to meet and learn from your fellow travellers, facilitated by group activities and conversations on the bus. We will visit several inspiring social enterprises as we travel up the coast and share a memorable meal in Byron Bay on the Monday night.

Coming on this journey will equip you to make the most of the SEWF opportunity. Building your community beforehand and having a strong network at the Summit will make it less overwhelming and increase your chances of finding what you need at the event.

The group will be connected through a private WhatsApp group and from facilitated sessions on the bus will understand each other’s priorities at the Summit, so we are all eyes and ears at the event, alerting each other to networking opportunities and key events.

This is for:

· Social enterprise founders;

· People working for intermediary and support organisations;

· Investors, storytellers, those working closely with social enterprises;

· Anyone travelling to the Social Enterprise World Forum in Brisbane.

All Tickets include:

· 2 nights accommodation, individual or twin-share;

· Transportation on a luxury bus filled with other social entrepreneurs and supporters;

· Breakfasts both mornings and a special dinner on Tuesday night in Byron Bay.

Note: Does not include accommodation in Brisbane or return transportation. SEWF tickets are extra. Tickets are available at https://opportunities.startsomegood.com/sewf-roadtrip-2022/

There are 15 Subsidised seats available on the bus to help more local enterprises to take advantage of this opportunity, supported by the City of Sydney, City of Parramatta and MinterEllison.
