Advisory Services

Our Advisory Service

The term ‘White Box’ comes from the common name for a species of native Australian eucalyptus tree that provides pollen to winter bees. Just like the tree, we strive to provide pollen to the jobs-focused social enterprise sector in order to help create impact at scale.

As a pollinator for the sector, we assist jobs-focused social enterprises with a wide range of support to help them to design and developed enterprise models that will create jobs. Our services include Capacity Building and Guidance, Strategic Business Planning, Partnership Negotiations, Investment Readiness and Capital Raising, Property Search and Assessment, Workshops and Ideation Sessions.
