This spring, during Social Enterprise Month, we invite you to join us for an evening of celebrating Canadian social entrepreneurs who are constantly pushing the boundaries of traditional mindsets and going beyond reasonable thinking to reimage value out of broken systems. We will kick-off the evening with a panel of founders of 4 global purpose driven companies who will share insights on how they are transforming people’s lives by reimagining value in various industries across different geographies in North America and internationally.

In the second part of the evening, following the Pecha Kucha art of concise presentations, 6 up-and-coming impact entrepreneurs who form the 2017 cohort of the CCS iHub accelerator program will each have 400 seconds to share their stories of how they transform and reimagine value out of broken systems. This is the greatest time for innovators to come to life!

From sustainable local food systems and life-altering organic products, to innovative energy solutions and upcycling under-utilized urban resources, the featured purpose-driven entrepreneurs will share how they reimagine value and build global businesses for good.
