Get your social enterprise or for-profit project off the ground!

>>Calling all social entrepreneurs to enter the HotHouse

We want to hear from you about your enterprising idea – whether rough and ready or well polished – if you have an idea that combines making a profit with community benefit, this is the opportunity to win some extra cash and support to take you to the next level.

By entering the HotHouse, you could be given the chance to be one of ten entrants to pitch to our expert panel of leading business and community practitioners. Up for grabs are six cash prizes of up to $5000.00 and professional support towards getting you a social loan.

The HotHouse is derived from the reality television series Dragon’s Den and will be run as part of the CED Conference programme on April 19 at the Trusts Stadium Waitakere.

>>Germinate or Fertilise?

If you have the seed of an idea but lack the cash to germinate it, the Hothouse ‘Sowing your Seeds’category is the seedling tray for you.

If you have germinated, and want to move from the seedling tray to the vege patch, but need the help of some green thumbs and extra fertiliser to make it happen – then the HotHouse category ‘Water your Grass Roots’ is your best bet!

This category is open to both individuals and groups or organisations – impress us with your rough and ready social enterprise idea.
