By working with a targeted number of organizations (who have watched the A.S.E.S.S. videos and filled out the associated tools), our coaching seeks to train the mind to solve problems rather than simply offering solutions. This is where true capacity building lives as it is about developing skills and strategies that can be called upon when challenges arise throughout a social enterprise journey.

Please see the 'Coaching' Section on our website for further details on our coaching process. To apply to take part in our coaching process, please complete the below idea submission. As mentioned, we are only able to work with a limited number of organizations and they will be selected based on the alignment of their needs and our tools.
