Matt Pfahlert of ACRE was awarded a Churchill Fellowship in 2013, which saw him travel to the US, Canada and the UK to investigate social enterprise incubators and rural entrepreneurship programs designed to rejuvenate rural communities.

ACRE Co-founder and CEO, Matt Pfahlert said ACRE was formed in response to declining rural communities and opportunities for young people.

"We're delighted that the Yulgilbar Foundation, the Helen Macpherson Smith Trust and the Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation can see real opportunities for our program across Victoria," Mr Pfahlert said.
"Given we started the Social Enterprise in Schools pilot program in 11 schools this year, the time is now right to officially launch ACRE so that the spotlight is put on new opportunities for young people. Our vision is to have entrepreneurial talent valued in the same way we already value talented young artists, scholars and athletes," he said. he Social Enterprise in Schools program is based on a similar program that has been running in Scotland for 10 years, through the Social Enterprise Academy (SEA).
"We have a partnership in place with SEA and their Chief Operating Officer, Sam Baumber will also be here for the launch," he said.
"We have been working in the background with government, business, and community leaders to build an enabling environment for entrepreneurship in rural and regional communities."
Mr Pfahlert said this holistic approach offers young people and their communities the possibility to move from a job-seeker to job-creator mindset.
