We know there are many of you out there with an idea or a concept that will have the potential to challenge the norm, to make way for a better and more sustainable future. Good ideas are not enough, you need to put it out there and let the world know about it.
The Early Ethical Entrepreneur Pitch Competition provides a perfect forum to share your idea to a network of people that are keen not only to hear your idea but also to help you on your journey to make it happen.


Astaria Geor founder of Ecopact Grocery was one of the 2018 Early Ethical Entrepreneur Pitch Competition Finalists. Ecopact was just a dream when they pitched their idea in front of a room full of people at the Ethical Enterprise Conference, now it has become a reality.

GoodWill Wine

David began Goodwill Wine after losing most of what he owned in the Black Saturday bushfires. With a strong desire to pay forward the help he received, he took the $15,000 given to him through the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal and instead of replacing what was lost, began sourcing high quality wines, built a website, and started passing on 50% of his profit to charity. Fast forward ten years, some recent angel investment and a team made up largely from the long term unemployed as well as the NDIS, and Goodwill Wine has grown rapidly; tripling its turnover in 2019 and paying forward over $275,000.
Buy Wines and support good causes.
