SEFA Social Enterprise Reporting
The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Research Group (IERG) at The University of Sydney Business School will lead research to develop and refine a practical framework for measuring social impact (MSI) in partnership with Social Enterprise Finance Australia (SEFA). The research team will initially include academic staff, a PhD student and an additional research assistant. Teaching and outreach activities will also be integrated into the research program, allowing SEFA and the IERG to engage multiple stakeholders, build understanding and capacity, and grow our networks.
Social Enterprise Finance Australia (SEFA) has been established to provide finance to social enterprises on commercial terms together with targeted business advice and support. Integral to this business objective is a commitment to helping its customers build their capacity to manage debt and become financially sustainable over time.
