Kia ora, I have a couple of questions:1. How do I set up a social enterprise, 2. And how do I reserve a name for this social enterprise?
I am looking for a CRM, database, tasks and projects system that would best suit a non-profit community social services trust. I’ve been looking into Bitrix24 & Penelope but the prices are astronomical (particularly Penelope). It does need to be secure with just a small number of users 4 – 6. We are seeing more need to increase social services in our rural town and with sensitive information – we want to make sure privacy is prioritised. Desperate for some recommendations please!
So after 3 years R&D to offer Kiwis a 100% domestic crafted stone option for Headstones and Memorials (as 97% are imported) we are the only domestically crafted stone currently permitted in Cemeteries In NZ, and after creating and harnessing technology for limitless photos, videos, music and written reflections to be accessed directly from the headstones, and after attracting some 2k followers on FB, over covid. Our conversion is terrible, and energy is so low to keep going. We could change the world, or just stop.. It’s almost like developing the solution to a personal need was the gate (our catalyst was the loss of a child, brother and father) . How do we re-energise and turn interest into conversion? Oh part of the low energy could be our baby triplets are nearing 2 years old.. LOL. HELP!
Hi there, I am shortly launching an apprenticeship model business to get more young people into sales and customer focused roles. In short, they’ll be assessed, placed and then go onto a 12 month training programme (online and ‘peer to peer’ support). This will be a ‘for profit’ business however we want to help coach/mentor/train those who may really need it as well. We have thought about the various ways it could happen and have looked at overseas models (including the KOTO principal – ‘know one teach one’). Looking for some help/guidance/idea swapping on how we could best structure this and who would be the groups it could impact most. Thanks, Scotty
How can I access a revolving credit scenario or similar for my community based organisation when I have poor credit. Also my financial management skills are poor , what organisation could I entrust to manage this side if things for me whilst I slowly build the skills over time to be able to do this myself?
Kia ora I would like some social enterprise advice please. I have also just set up an health and wellbeing business and could do with a mentor too. All advise appreciated. Nga mihiDiane Koti
Really wanting to know how to start my social enterprise, I have an idea for a virtual assistant company that will encourage technology upgrades in the region while promoting more flexible employment opportunities to grow skills and capacity in the labour market.
Who, can I talk to about establishing a Maori website on the Internet, where all 6.5 billion human beings can subscribe to and behave as a single family or Whanau?One where, people can serve one another or all of the requests we have in common from climate change through to fixing a hole in the road.!DA
As the Director of The Kindness Insitute, a non-profit organisation, the core function of my role is to locate and secure suitable funding for the various programme and organisational requirements. We have a robust system to identify relevant funders and have a solid diversification of funding opportunities (social enterprise, owned fundraisers etc) and currently generate enough revenue to operate successfully but not optimally or to generate growth opportunities, which is our ultimate mission, to empower all young people in Aotearoa with the skills they need to live a happy and fulfilled life. More info on our organisation and kaupapa below. My question is: what are the best ways of securing multi-year funding, ongoing corporate sponsorships and growth funding to allow us to not only serve and support our current rangatahi but push this out to a much wider reach. Our programme is evidence-based and scientifically proven to provide positive outcomes, so we have a platform that is effective, now we seek help to push this out to communities who need it. In short, based in Auckland, we are a not-for-profit, kaupapa Māori organisation that helps improve mental health among marginalised rangatahi, and those closest to them, through mindfulness, meditation and yoga, creative arts and cultural connection. Designed to encourage self-care, build resilience and leadership skills, our programmes are guided by Te Whare Tapa Whā.
Kia oraI am wanting to know if there are funding applications to allow me to offer my services to struggling families without them having to pay or pay full price so i can be paid or partner with a service that does this. I know alot of people do not get treatment due to financial strain and if I could partner with someone to finance my clinic to support whanau and communities.
Kia ora, requiring advice, we are recently set up company, with a social focus. An example is that we have a rental home which we place single parent in, water, ground maintenace and wifi are paid for by the company and wrap services around by tapping into other services that can support the whanau to increase income, wellbeing to staircase them to achieve their personal goals. We fund this personally but I would like to talk to someone on an application that I’m wanting to submit to awhi Wahine that find having a criminal record a blockage to finding employment.
