Second Speaker: Steven Moe from Parry Field Law speaking on Social Enterprise: a missing ingredient from the recipe?  

A Social enterprise is a purpose driven enterprise that goes beyond making profit, by aiming to positively impact social and environmental change in the world. New Zealand has legal structures for Trusts with purpose and Companies for profit, but there is no in between. How do we challenge those extremes to allow a new legal structure to be formed so social that enterprise can flourish?

The Social Enterprise World Forum is being held in New Zealand later in the year, so now is an incredible opportunity to start this conversation. Steven is hosting 'Legal Mashup', a discussion session around the key legal issues that affect social enterprises, charities and not for profit organisations.

Thursday 4th May, 6 – 7pm at the XCHC. There are limited spaces so RSVP to Steven on: stevenmoe@parryfield.com For more details on the discussion visit Facebook: Legal Mashup for social enterprises and Charities. More from Steven: http://changeforgood.parryfield.com

Coffee & Jam is Christchurch's longest running weekly meet up for entrepreneurially-minded people. It’s a great place to see ordinary people doing extraordinary things, meet people, learn and share in a creative space, hear about other events in Christchurch and indulge in a little bit of free coffee, jam and bread.
