Introduction to Social Enterprise
Curious about just what a "social enterprise" really is? What it might
achieve?   How it might help you make more money for your
social mission project?  What it would take to get your
"money-making" social purpose idea off the ground?

The Centre for Social Innovation and Aperio are pleased to offer an
information session to explore social enterprise, how it fits into the
social economy, and what your organization might be faced with in
making a decision to explore this approach to revenue generation. 
With an introduction to social enterprise and stories from the front
lines, John Baker will guide us through an exploration that answers

  • What are the key concepts of social enterprise?
  • How can we match money and mission?
  • Is social enterprise right for your organization?
  • What are the advantages?  Disadvantages?  
  • What are some challenges to operating a successful social enterprise?
  • What more do you need?
