The new social enterprise incubator for social entrepreneurs like you!


Are you one of Australia’s emerging social entrepreneurs? Or, are you a socialite with an aching for entrepreneurship. Either way, you are in the right place. Perk up your attention – this one’s for you.

BT and the School for Social Entrepreneurs have just launched a new program to support industrious entrepreneurs, just like you.

The SSE & BT Social Entrepreneur Incubator is an annual learning program for up to 25 students who have an idea for a startup venture with a lasting community benefit.

BT will provide financial support to the incubator as well as business expertise and mentoring to students in the program.

School for Social Entrepreneurs Australia chief executive, Celia Hodson, said, “The Incubator program will prepare our students for the best start to their entrepreneurial journey by tapping into the business expertise of BT as well as giving them the confidence and networks to make a real difference in their communities.”

Are you thinking about the world around you?

BT Financial Group chief executive, Brad Cooper added, “We are very excited to provide support directly to entrepreneurs – to prepare them to launch social initiatives that deliver positive social change. It aligns perfectly with our vision to help people prepare for their best financial future.

“Our funding will provide the opportunity for 25 students to participate in this program.”

Previous School for Social Entrepreneurs students have included Jamie Moore, the creator of Hello Sunday Morning, which tackles binge drinking culture in young people, and Michael Combs, founder of Career Trackers which works with private sector companies and Indigenous university students to create career pathways through internship programs across Australia.
