Today, the Trico Foundation team is very excited to share that Alexandra Daignault (Mount Royal University) and Ziad Paracha (University of Calgary) will be joining us from May to August as we are truly inspired by their passion for their ventures. We look forward to working with them as they develop their social enterprises, learning from them as they bring their ventures through our A.S.E.S.S. process, and collaborating with their respective mentors (Ray DePaul & Houston Peschl).

Potluck Cafe Society: Social EnterPrize Case Study

Recipient of the Social EnterPrize in 2011, the Potluck Café Society is featured in the latest edition of our case study series, our effort to more effectively tell the stories of amazing Canadian social enterprises.

Written by RADIUS of the Beedie School of Business, Simon Fraser University, the study demonstrates a social enterprise committed to extensive and ongoing evolution – from pivots in its models, to changes in leadership, to impact that ranges from serving sandwiches to systemic food security.
