Happy New Year! The start of 2022 gives us the opportunity to reflect and learn from 2021. Although 2021 came with its many challenges, the past twelve months were busy, historic, and made great progress in advancing both social entrepreneurship and Calgary’s role as a hub for social entrepreneurship.
Prizes have the power to incentivize and the Trico Charitable Foundation has delivered $270,000 to social enterprises in Canada to help advance their work in using business models to solve social problems. Social enterprises across the early, middle and advanced stages were celebrated at the Pivot on Purpose Summit delivered in collaboration with the Haskayne School of Business.

The NU Community Board has just opened up the application process for our first ever national award for student social entrepreneurs. The 2021 awards will be presented at the virtual Pivot on Purpose (POP) summit. The NU awards seek to celebrate the best and brightest student social entrepreneurs in Canada. Our hope is to advance education and encourage academic excellence by celebrating excellence, best practices, high standards, advances in, and/or new knowledge relating to student social entrepreneurship.
The NU Community Board is pleased to announce this year’s recipients of the inaugural NU Alberta Student Social Entrepreneur Awards. These awards celebrate the best and brightest Alberta students that are pushing our understanding of how business models can solve social problems.
