They are reimagining food, energy, packaging materials; all the while winning awards, securing financing and building markets. During the panel you will hear how they transitioned from idea to company, about their first pitch, when ‘the wheels almost came off’ and much more!

We were honoured to host SEWF 2013. It made history in a number of ways- it was a first for Canada and attracted a record number of speakers and attendees (1,000 individuals from more than 30 countries and over 100 speakers from 20 countries)- but we are most proud of the quality of the discussions on Skills Building, Social Finance, Indigenous Social Enterprise, Collaboration, Policy and Research, and Social Innovation.Post-Conference Reports
