Element - - Upfront -

New Zealand is to host a ma­jor in­ter­na­tional con­fer­ence, the So­cial En­ter­prise World Fo­rum (SEWF), in Christchurch in 2017. Ak­ina Foun­da­tion chief ex­ec­u­tive Alex Han­nant be­lieves it will give so­cial en­trepreneurs a boost here. “Host­ing the SEWF in New Zealand in 2017 is an op­por­tu­nity to fur­ther ac­cel­er­ate the de­vel­op­ment of our emerg­ing so­cial en­ter­prise sec­tor. It will give us ex­po­sure to the best in­ter­na­tional prac­tice and strengthen re­la­tion­ships with the global move­ment.”
