About Social Enterprise Heroes:
Social Enterprise Heroes is an annual gathering that celebrates the amazing individuals and organizations that work to create and sustain our healthy communities and local economies through social enterprise. At Heroes, we focus our attention for one evening on the incredible work of several social enterprises, seeking to understand and address some of the challenges they face to effectively creating impact. These are typically challenges that we can learn from together—and that can often be overcome with the right combination of financial support and expert advice.
The social enterprises leave Heroes with a deeper understanding of their businesses, ready to face challenges and build on their opportunities, and with the right combination of tools & resources to succeed. 2014 was the sixth year of social enterprise heroes and was presented as part of BC Social Enterprise Month, as proclaimed by the Province of BC.
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.
