Improving outcomes for more Australians.


SSE is widely recognised for fostering partnerships and providing market-leading entrepreneurship programs that deliver a lasting positive impact on people, places, and planet.


We believe in the transformative power of education, and in the impact that entrepreneurial mindsets and skillsets – both proven drivers for uplifting communities, bolstering local economies, and nationwide innovation and economic empowerment – can have.


In partnering with SSE, your organisation will be contributing directly to the self-determination and economic and social prosperity of typically underrepresented and underserved communities including:

  • Women and girls
  • First Nations Peoples
  • Young people
  • Culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) communities

By collaborating with SSE, you have a unique opportunity to align your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) objectives with impactful initiatives.


Driven by a belief that entrepreneurship is a powerful catalyst for change, we aim to create a world where every Australian is empowered with the skills, capabilities, and mindset needed to overcome barriers to employment and entrepreneurship, and to thrive in life and work in the 21st century.


It takes a village to raise an entrepreneur. Will you join us?
