The social enterprise helping create more social enterprises

In this week’s episode, Simon Pound talks to Louise Aitken, CEO of the Ākina Foundation, about how they're helping social enterprises grow.


For the last three years the Ākina Foundation has been delivering a programme in partnership with the government, called The Impact Initiative, focussed on the future of New Zealand’s social enterprises. Ākina runs a range of programmes to help more businesses make money and positive change, to help grow companies’ capability, support them in things like finance and other nuts and bolts of doing business well, and create and demonstrate impact in what they do.


The Ākina Foundation is an impact consultancy and impact investor, and to talk about what that means, CEO Louise Aitken joined Business is Boring this week for a chat.


Business is Boring is presented by The Spinoff in association with Callaghan Innovation.
