Co-creating our future

Digital Storytellers is only one piece in the puzzle of creating ecosystem evolution. That's why we've brought together a content advisory group composed of ecosystem leaders and social enterprise do-ers who all have demonstrated experience and effectiveness in enabling larger growth and the ability to work in systems entrepreneurship. All are passionate advocates of social enterprise and have staked their organisations and life's work on the growth of the sector.

Alliance of Social Enterprise Networks Australia (ASENA)

 

The development of Australia's state-based social enterprise networks represents an exciting moment for the nation's social enterprise community to stand up and represent itself as a significant industry to government, business and the greater public. With an estimated 20,000 social enterprises operating today, there is immense potential to catalyse the impact potential of social enterprise nationally. We now need to connect everyone in this network, collectively fly the flag of social enterprise and show how we're meeting this extraordinary moment in history.

Social Enterprise World Forum

 

Traditionally held as a in-person conference that travels around the world, the forum now runs as a series of fully digital events, allowing vast new connectivity between the global social enterprise movement never before possible.

Digital Storytellers, along with Impact Boom and Social Change Central, have been engaged with the world forum for several years.

For Australian Social Enterprises, the forum represents a unique opportunity to connect our local efforts into the growth of the global impact economy, while rallying our policymakers to learn from global best practice. The event also serves as a timely moment to rally our communities to connect and support one another in ever evolving ways.

Goodtel

 

Goodtel believes doing good is just as important as making a profit. Goodtel is about helping the planet and those who need it most. We know most businesses are in to maximise their profit for shareholders and there is no judgement from us. We just prefer to be part of a new wave businesses that believe doing good is just as important as making a profit. Goodtel is certainly not the only company that thinks this but is very proud to be a part of this way of thinking.
