Nurturing Social Changemakers

Wild Rumpus has spent the last four months co-delivering Social Change 101, a four month intensive incubator for start-up and emerging social enterpreneurs in the Illawarra, in partnership with School for Social Entrepreneurs Australia (SSE).

It’s been an incredible ride. This bunch of passionate, hard-working, creative visioners and game-changers are bringing amazing things to our community: food fairness, technology connecting people to services, arts empowerment in schools, employment through cafe and food celebration, creative hubs…. watch this space! Each student recieved mentorship from a local business leader of social changemaker.

As a social enterprise that had the opportunity to incubate at SSE in Sydney, it’s been such an exciting development, plus a lot of hard work to bring this program here to our own community.

We are moving towards establishing a monthly peer network for Social Enterprise Illawarra. All are welcome.

Thanks to the program sponsors: iAccelerate, UOW, Wollongong City Council and RDA Illawarra.
