SS48 is a non-profit organisation committed to driving positive change in society the ‘business’ way. We believe that the social sector in Australia falls short of operating at its full potential, and that it needs more attention in the community, particularly from the business and public sectors.
Our vision is to be the launchpad for entrepreneurs who will go forth to create significant social impact in cities in Australia and around the world.
We aim to achieve this by connecting up people who share similar passions at an exciting 48 hour event (by the same name) where social startups can be soft launched. We provide participants with the network, support, tools and resources required to take their giant first leaps into social enterprise.
SS48 is formed by a team of individuals who have worked in building successful (social and non-social sector) startup organisations. We come from professional and academic backgrounds including McKinsey & Company, Macquarie Bank, Accenture and Harvard University.
