- Leaderships skills are important to creative and social enterprise success
- Both creativity and innovation were extremely important to their business
- Creative and social enterprises are working towards a range of the SDGs and other impact and creative goals but are particularly focused on gender equality
- The majority of social enterprises, and almost half of creative enterprises are measuring their impact
