Social Enterprise Heroes/Social Enterprise Day of Learning

You are here

16 April, 2014

Presented by Enterprising Non-Profits, Heroes is an annual event that recognizes and celebrates the champions of Social Enterprise in BC.

On April 16, 2014, the social impact community will convene at the Roundhouse Community Arts Centre in Vancouver to witness a friendly competition as three non-profit social enterprises ‘quick-pitch’ their best ideas and biggest opportunities in front of a live audience.

Last year our challengers were awarded over $40,000 (combined) in grants & expertise by our impressive roster of judges who will ask important questions and offer up sound advice as they evaluate each pitch. 

Heroes is both highly entertaining and fun as well as informative. Together, we will celebrate the profound impact of social enterprise in our province.

  • You will have an opportunity to network & mingle during our evening reception at Social Enterprise Heroes.
  • You will learn about the products and services of social enterprises and how their work supports their mission at the tradeshow.
  • You will be entertained and inspired by our three finalists as they pitch their business challenges to a panel of judges for the opportunity to be rewarded with amazing financial and consulting support.
  • Heroes is anchored by a Day of Learning.
