Founder Update:

After four years of conferences, campaigns and community – SeCo is no longer operating as a society or organisation. Thank you for being part of creating this conscious community. For social enterprise opportunites we recommend subscribing to Jay Booklin’s Social Change Central. I’ve now moved on to working with Deakin University full time spearheading SPARK Deakin, the university’s entrepreneurial program where we’ve embedded the same spirit of purpose driven community. We reserve one place for a social enterprise in our accelerator (up to $10 000 funding) and in 2019 funded three for purpose enterprises. You can learn more here. If you’re setting up a social enterprise, Melbourne is a fantastic place to do so with a thriving community. Feel free to reach out or say hello. Thank you for being part of the journey, Daizy

Social Enterprise Collective (SeCo) was founded in late 2014 by a group of young, ambitious uni students curious about making an impact during their time at university. We exist to to empower young leaders and change makers, equipping them with the essential tools to become social entrepreneurs.

We believe in creating a better world utilising the tools of business. University is the perfect platform to embrace your inner entrepreneur and make a real difference, whether you want to support campaigns or startup your own social enterprise – join our community of thought leaders, hustlers and dreamers.


To instill young visionaries, change makers & innovators with the required business acumen and skill set to tackle social issues through social entrepreneurship.

We select small groups of students each semester to take part in our Founders program which involves learning about social enterprise business models, impact measurement and lean approaches to social enterprise. Learn more under the ‘Get Involved’ Tab.
