Trico Foundation Announces 2017 Social EnterPrize Jury

Trico Foundation Announces 2017 Social EnterPrize Jury

Specifically hand-picked for their expertise, leadership, and knowledge of social entrepreneurship, the selection of the 2017 jury members was a strategic part of Trico Charitable Foundation’s plan to take the Social EnterPrize – and its work in building capacity in social entrepreneurship – to the next level . We are also thrilled the jury members represented Canada coast to coast, all the way from Fredericton, New Brunswick to Vancouver, British Columbia, while also drawing heavily from our home city, Calgary. We are grateful to our jury for choosing the two amazing and deserving organizations to be celebrated at EconoUs2017 on September 14th, 2017.

Social Enterprise as a Coral Reef:  Insights into the Evolution of Social Impact

Social Enterprise as a Coral Reef: Insights into the Evolution of Social Impact

To mix metaphors, seeing successful social enterprises as coral reefs may be the tip of the iceberg in a new understanding of how social enterprises grow and affect social change, and how we can help them do so. These themes will be explored more fully at our EconoUs2017 event Doing Business Differently: An evening of celebration and insight on September 14, 2017.

Groupe Convex: Social EnterPrize Case Study

Groupe Convex: Social EnterPrize Case Study

Recipient of the Social EnterPrize in 2011, Groupe Convex 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 the Ontario Institute for Students in Education, University of Toronto, the case study demonstrates a social enterprise committed to generating meaningful jobs in an increasingly diverse number of ways. It also highlights the possible challenges of relying too much on a particular government policy and the difficult choices that come when one income stream does better than another.
