The Investment Readiness Program: a 101 for Social Purpose Organizations

Women talking around a tableBusiness doesn’t have to be just about the bottom line. Community leaders know that business can be done differently, and can be a tool for social innovation that unlocks effective solutions to pressing social, cultural and environmental concerns.

The Investment Readiness Program (IRP) aims to support them. Successful applicants will get between $10,000 - $100,000 to invest in their social enterprise and help make an even greater positive change in their community. These funds can be used to research, launch, design, measure and scale up your social enterprise to achieve your sustainability plan to take on investment in the future.

This free webinar is intended for social purpose organizations interested in applying to the IRP.  Find out more about the program and the steps to apply.

Social Enterprise World Forum 2021

*In light of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, SEWF C.I.C. and the SEWF 2020 host Common Good Solutions, have agreed to postpone this year’s event in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Instead of gathering in Canada from 23-25th September 2020 the global social enterprise community will come together in Halifax from 2 – 4th June 2021.*

We are often divided by our differences and separated by our fears. Imagine three days of relationship strengthening meeting old friends, making new ones, and focusing on our common interests, shared values, commitment to people and community, and our need to protect the planet.  Nova Scotia is a place where the land, sea and sky meet in a sensory cornucopia. Smell, see and feel the differences of place. This is our place and we want to share it with you. Join us for a time and carry us away in your hearts as you leave.
