The Studio's aims are to support the development of the social enterprises we work with whilst at the same time undertaking research to better understand entrepreneurial processes in a social enterprise context. The Studio also provides opportunities for students to work with the social enterprises as 'living case studies' to learn about social impact business models. It provides a rich research and learning setting for CSI's researchers and students. 

The Social Startup Studio is supported by Swinburne, Equity Trustees and the Victorian Government's Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions.
