So what do we want to do with this Loomio thing?

Starter for ten mission statement

Create a space where we can discuss our strategy for social enterprise in New Zealand, that spans further than our normal local networks.

Empower people to invite other social entrepreneurs and supporters they think can add to and drive the conversation at various levels of private and public sector.

Centralise starting and running discussions they we are passionate about, @mention people they would like to inform and add to the discussion, and create proposals around actions we can take.

Initial discussion points could include:

  • funding / tools
  • community building
  • capability in the industry
  • charity vs. business set up
  • common tools - what can share / partner on / consolidate

Let the discussing begin!

Just to put it out there (if I write it down, I have to do it, right??). I'm willing to put 2 hours a week into driving further discussions and coalition building in the funding area. I want to create a tool kit of financial instruments that social entrepreneurs can use in New Zealand.

I think one useful thing would be to facilitate community organised google hangout workshops. Pretty easy to organise and I'd be happy to run a couple.

Fab @joshuavial - community google hang out workshops would be great! What sorts of sessions were you thinking?


Joshua Vial Fri 20 Sep 2013 5:01AM

Personally I would be happy to do sessions on

  • financing using revenue share backed instruments
  • leverage the power of network based organisations
  • transform your work with trello
  • mitigating risk through customer validation and iteration

Hi guys, not really sure how I can most effectively contribute but happy to participate on anything you rock stars are up to... :)

Great stuff @joshuavial - all good stuff! I'm particularly interested in the first one :)

@kailacolbin - great to have you in here! Might be interesting to start a discussion about what is happening down in ChCh. Would you be keen to share what you're seeing down there in the socent space?


Kaila Colbin Mon 23 Sep 2013 1:57AM

@annaguenther of course happy to share. It's still such a nascent scene here, though; lots of non-profit, NGO, charitable, volunteer activity, not as much trading-for-social-purpose activity.
