The City of Vancouver Proclaims March 8, 2012 Social Enterprise Day!

I am attending BC Social Enterprise MeetUp & Social Enterprise Dragons March 8! Should be a great day! Register here.

Check out ENP here in Vancouver and also in Alberta, Toronto and Ottawa. The  Ontario websites are still being built out.

What is a social enterprise? The definition ENP uses is as follows:

“Social enterprises are businesses operated by non-profits with the dual purpose of generating income by selling a product or service in the marketplace and creating a social, environmental or cultural value. …”

This is also referred to this as a blended return.

You can access their list of resources here. There are lots of good examples, videos and surveys. Take a look.

For those of us in BC, there will be workshops held by ENP in 14 different communities. Sign up here. Building Your Social Enterprise Workshops
