What is your social purpose?

What drives you to want to set up and sustain a business or enterprise? What difference are you trying to make in the world? What skills and strengths and values are you bringing to this new venture?

All entrepreneurs, especially those involved with enterprises with a social or environmental benefit, are driven by an intention to make a positive impact in the world. This module is a chance to explore your own motivations and aspirations, and to clearly identify the specific difference that you are trying to make.
