Following a sell-out event in early June, The Funding Network (TFN) is delighted to present our second Melbourne festival of inspiration and social entrepreneurship for 2014, this time in partnership with Australian Communities Foundation.

TFN hosts events at which four social entrepreneurs are invited to pitch for funding to an audience, made up of TFN members and guests. Aiming to secure $10,000 each, the entrepreneurs pitch in turn for six minutes and answer questions from the audience for six minutes. They then leave the room and the pledging session begins.

Congratulations to Woor-Dungin, St Kilda Gatehouse, Kids’ Own Publishing and Timehelp, the four excellent non-profit organisations that have been invited to pitch at this event.
