We live in a time when old and new paradigms of thinking are colliding. One example is the idea that charities are the primary way of “doing good” in our society, whereas business is about generating private profits. Social enterprise presents a new conception which seeks to combine both profit (traditional domain of business) and having positive impact (traditional domain of charity) through sustainable businesses. In this panel we will hear about the current state of social enterprise in New Zealand, how founders choose to become charities vs social enterprises, Māori perspectives on Social Enterprise, different legal structures used overseas andthe limitations for social enterprises wanting charitable status.
