Over the last few months I’ve been participating the Social Traders THRIVE program – a support scheme for  established Australian social enterprises who wish to build and improve on their work. It’s been a great opportunity to learn about social enterprise and how not for profit organisations can more sustainably operate and grow. As part of the program we’ve learned many of the tools used by businesses around the world. The Business Model Canvas has been a fantastic way to assess the basics of what it takes to sustainably run a business – this short video explains the basics.
