Why the P.A.S.T.A Test –
Every pasta shape is made from the same simple, humble ingredients—typically flour, eggs, salt, and water—that act as the foundation for countless different meals. Social Enterprises are like pasta – formed from the same simple ingredients – Purpose, Assets, Surplus, Trading and Accountability– that make up 1000s of enterprises across Ireland.
Those five components come together to create magic in our communities.
