The Edmonton CDC is pleased to announce that the next edition of our intensive, online Social Enterprise Bootcamp workshop series will take place beginning in March, 2020.
Bootcamp offers a practical introduction to the field of social enterprise where innovators use the tools of business to achieve social change. Participants explore social enterprise as a means of addressing serious social or environmental challenges. By applying the resources offered through bootcamp, participants test the mission, financial, operational and market viability of their social enterprise concepts. The focus is on learning by doing – the direct application of key business concepts and skills to the modelling of a fictitious social enterprise.
2022 Dates: March 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 – April 6, 13, 20, and May 11 and 18
