Countdown to the Two Feet Showcase

We’ve been fortunate over the course of the past six months to work with some of the most inspiring organisations that are committed to solving some of the world’s most pressing problems. Whether it’s improving the lives of people with disabilities, reducing waste within our food system or tackling homelessness – it has been a privilege to work with such dedicated and passionate people.

As our Two Feet Program comes to a close across the country, we’d like to invite you to the Two Feet public showcases we are holding across the country.

The showcases will give you the chance to celebrate the hard work and achievements of the Two Feeters, and to network with thought leaders from social enterprise, NFP and the for-purpose ecosystem more generally. We will also be sharing our 2018 programs and accelerator calendar.

If you’d like to join us, click on the links below and sign up to the events we are holding across the country. It’s important you get in quickly though, as we only have limited spaces available that are filling up fast!
