Social enterprises

The Spark project recognises the unique challenges facing established and start-up social enterprises.  As such, we have developed information and resources that focus on the particular needs for each of these categories, which we define as:

Social enterprises are businesses, which:
  1. Have a social and/or environmental mission
  2. Generate, or are working towards generating, at least a quarter of their income through selling goods and services
  3. Have organisational autonomy and reinvest all or some of their profits to further their mission

Established social enterprises:

Those organisations that are more than 3 years old.
