Social Entrepreneurship For A Better World | Run a Social Enterprise: Pairing Impact and Profit

April 11, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT


Social entrepreneurship combines the passion of making social or environmental impact with profit-making ambitions. Quebec’s social economy represents over 11, 200 enterprises with overall sales exceeding 47.8 billion dollars.  

The spirit of a social enterprise goes beyond money. “Do good, earn good!” Join this three-part series to learn how to design, establish, launch, and grow a social enterprise that has a positive community impact and generates revenue from subject-matter experts and social entrepreneurs. 

WORKSHOP 1 – Run A Social Enterprise: Pairing Impact and Profit

Social enterprises have become mainstream rather than a peculiar vague structure just to do social or environmental good. From the familiar sphere of circular economy to clean tech, vegan luxury, and bigger dreams like carbon economy, the variety of activities is growing. This workshop will help you learn how to build impactful and profitable social enterprises through the lens of business and impact model innovation.
