Trading for Social Purpose Study

Estimating the size and economic impact of the NZ social enterprise sector

Does your organisation...

  • Have an economic, social, cultural or environmental mission that provides a public or community benefit?
  • Sell goods or services to fund your mission?
  • Derive a substantial portion of income from trade?
  • Use the majority of profit/surplus in the fulfilment of your mission?

If so, you meet the definition of a Social Enterprise.  

We need your help

In August 2017, you’ll have the opportunity to help create a supportive, connected and engaged social enterprise community in New Zealand. With support from DIA and Ākina, Superu is estimating the size and economic impact of the NZ social enterprise sector.

The information you provide will be used to enable a stronger community, create public policy that better supports social entrepreneurship, promotes social enterprise scalability and growth, and benchmark our national impact against other countries from around the world.

This is an important step in New Zealand’s journey to becoming a more sustainable and innovative global leader. 

Join a public directory of social enterprises

Plus, by participating in the Trading for Social Purpose Study, you’ll also have the opportunity to be listed on Ākina’s future directory of social enterprises. The directory will provide a stronger sense of interconnectivity for the growing community of organisations with purpose. It will also be publicly accessible, enabling anyone to search social enterprises by industry.

The Survey opens to participants soon. Sign up to hear more.


Enter your email address below and we’ll let you know when the survey is live. Alternatively, recommend a social enterprise who you think should take part in the survey.
