We’ve got heaps of cool stories to share about the awesome participants in Live the Dream and the projects they’re working on to make the world a better place.
You can also speak to our staff, who are social enterprise ninjas with their own projects on the go, or our alumni – many of whom are still working on social enterprise-related projects.
