Based on Dragons Den, the Social Enterprise Heroes will reconvene for its 7th year at The York Theatre, the newly renovated 100 year old historical jewel of East Van.It’s a celebration! Enterprising Non-profits will host over 200 people from the social impact community including social entrepreneurs, investors, business experts, government, intermediaries and more.
It’s a competition! We focus our attention for one evening on the incredible work of several social enterprises. Through their 10 minutes pitches, we seek to understand their goals and address some of their major challenges & opportunities to effectively creating impact. Our panel of business advisers will assess each pitch and award up-to $50,000 (combined) in consulting and grants.
It’s a learning event! We can learn together – and our social enterprises leave Heroes having a deeper understanding of their business, seeing challenges and opportunities for what they are, and with the right combination of tools & resources needed to create change more effectively.
It’s Social Enterprise Heroes! It’s fun and informative and you don’t want to miss it.
