In the third episode of our week-long series exploring the possibilities, challenges, and potential of social enterprise in New Zealand, our panel looks at the political risks social enterprises face.

Watch the rest of the series here.

What are the political risks of operating in the social enterprise sphere? Lisa King from Eat My Lunch talks about what happened the time they wrote to MPs challenging them to take up the EML cause.

This is the third part of a conversation chaired recently by Simon Wilson, which brought together some of New Zealand’s most prominent and active voices in the area: Alex Hannant from social enterprise enabling company Ākina Foundation, Lisa King of buy-one-give-one food company Eat My Lunch, Michelle Sharp of toymakers Kilmarnock Enterprises, and Nick Wells of Māori legal practice Te Waka Ture, a division of Chapman Tripp.

The content is brought to you by Kiwibank in association with the Social Enterprise World Forum.

The Social Enterprise World Forum is on September 27-29th in Christchurch.
