Tuesday 11/9, 1-2pm Growing Pains: Why Isn’t Your Social Impact Brand Profitable (Yet)?

RSVP Link

This is the million dollar question and we’ve all asked it.

  • You want to scale your sustainable or shop-for-good brand
  • Your sales are increasing, but are they as profitable as they could be?
  • Or you’ve been at it for several years and sales have finally outgrown your existing operations

Wherever you are in your journey, don’t miss this master class by Michelle King Thomas, founding partner of fair trade fashion powerhouse Mata Traders.

Michelle will discuss her journey as a social entrepreneur and share the growth story of Mata Traders — from its solid foundation to turbulent times to her leadership transition out of the day-to-day. She will share her specific learnings about navigating both uncontrolled growth and plateaued revenue and answer questions about the possibilities and pitfalls unique to entrepreneurs growing a social impact brand. Join us!

This event is hosted by GoodCarts and Social Venture Circle .
