Can capitalism have a conscience? The last decade has seen an explosion of new Australian startups that seek to make a difference while also turning a profit. But how can an ethically minded business with one eye on the bigger picture thrive in a globalised marketplace often steeped in exploitation? And what sets a true ‘social enterprise’ apart from plain old marketing to newly woke consumers? Hear from some of Australia’s leading socially-oriented entrepreneurs seeking to rewrite the rules of running a business — without ruining the world.

Speakers include: Sarah Gun, Kari Allen, Andrew Nunn, Eloise Hall, Isobel Marshall
