Welcome to our first Social Enterprise (SocEnt) Bootcamps launching in Calgary and Edmonton!

This is a free bootcamp for social enterprises who are past the ideation stage but who are either pre to early revenue stages, has social impact or wants to embed a social enterprise model into the core of their organization.  

Here's your chance to join the first #SocEnt Bootcamps in Calgary and Edmonton, led by ATB and supported by Startup Calgary, Calgary Economic Development and Work Nicer.

In Alberta there is no "social enterprise" incorporation  – social enterprise models can be found in for-profit, non-profit and co-operative models. If you haven't incorporated yet, that's okay too!    

Over a day and a half, we will tackle the following: 

  • Are you solving the real problem? 
  • How to be apart of systematic social change
  • How to embed more social impact
  • Lean #SocEnt Marketing
  • Lean #SocEnt Business Models
  • Talk Nerdy to me: Meet the experts from accounting to finance
  • Coaching: Get connected to other social entrepreneurs and community supporters to get feedback on your model & grow your network.
