Life-changing opportunity, for all.


SSE is widely recognised for fostering partnerships and providing services that deliver a lasting positive impact on people, places, and planet. SSE’s entrepreneurship programs support, uplift, and empower many of the diverse communities Australia cares for.


If your organisation is seeking to expand its national or international engagement or forge new collaborations within key groups such as First Nation Peoples, those in regional and rural areas, young people, women and girls, and culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) communities, we’d love to talk.


Empowering and uplifting historically under-serviced communities is a vital means of contributing to advancing Australia’s economic and social prosperity, and improving the wellbeing of more people.


To help maximise social impact – and deliver on our strategic goals – SSE has developed a series of ‘Moonshot Goals’ (see below). These Goals are ambitious, society-wide, and collaborative missions designed to inspire innovation, mobilise our collective resources, and drive lasting positive change for more Australians.


It takes a village to raise an entrepreneur, so an ongoing commitment from organisations across all sectors is vital. Join forces with SSE, and let’s build Australia’s future leaders together!

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander

By 2030, we aim to upskill 2,500 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to overcome economic disadvantage through self-employment by delivering culturally safe and sensitive entrepreneurial education, creating a ripple effect where the Aboriginal-owned business employs at least 1-3 more community members.
