Event description

Description

We warmly invite you to the official opening of the Service One Social Enterprise Hub @ UC and the launch of The Mill House Social Enterprise Accelerator Program.

We will showcase the vibrant local social enterprises that have been selected to participate in our three-month business advisory program and show off our new events, training and co-working space, the Service One Social Enterprise Hub (AKA 'the pub'). We also have an inspiring speaker from LEAD, a leading Canberra social enterprise committed to providing meaningful work for people living with disabilities.

Social enterprises are not-for-profit or for-profit investible businesses that trade in pursuit of specific social, cultural and/or environmental outcomes.


Welcome to Country:

Visiting the University of Canberra

The Service One Social Enterprise Hub venue is located the middle of the campus in a ground floor retail area called the Hub. We are activating a space most recently occupied by Zierholtz across from Sizzle Bento. If you get lost, just ask anyone where the 'old pub Zierholtz' is.

Please allow plenty of time to arrive as the casual parking areas are about a 5-minute walk from the Hub. There is designated disabled parking just immediately outside of the Hub.

Loading zones are strictly enforced (so don't take a chance).

Maps for accessibility and casual parking are here: https://www.canberra.edu.au/maps/parking
