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.


  • Bootcamp enables participants to both understand the conceptual and practical considerations associated with social enterprise.   Participants will be able to:
  • Describe a conceptual framework for social entrepreneurship;
  • Explore how enterprises around the world have used business opportunities to achieve social, economic and environmental missions;
  • Contrast and compare social enterprises, for-profit ventures and non-profit programs at the level of mission, strategy, culture, management, and impact;
  • Understand the range of organizational and legal options available to social entrepreneurs; andIdentify the sources of financing, investment and grant making options available to social entrepreneurs.
