Event Description

While using business as a force for good is becoming increasingly popular, what does it really mean to build a business with purpose?

At our workshop, How to Build a Business with a Purpose, we’ll explore:

  • What are the legal considerations for building a business with purpose?
  • What is the difference between a charity and a social enterprise?
  • What do I need to know if I want to rapidly scale my business?
  • What are some mechanisms for impact (for example, BCorp and Social Traders)?

Academy Xi and LUNA have come together to bring an event series on SCALING IMPACT. In this 3-part series, we will provide you with the steps and practical knowledge that you need in order to start building a purpose-driven and impactful business.
