SERVICE ONE and other social enterprises operate for-purpose and for-profit and we have a vested interest to see other social enterprises get off the ground in the hope future generations will have real choice when it comes to the types of businesses they want to deal with. That’s why we’re proud to support The Mill House Ventures as they present a series of workshops for aspiring social entrepreneurs.
