Trico Charitable Foundation and the Haskayne School of Business are extremely pleased to announce Charmian Love as the judge for What’s Next YYC at the Social EnterPrize event on November 21st, 2019. Charmian is also offering the four lucky recipients of What’s Next YYC one hour of one-on-one coaching, which is a huge bonus for any social entrepreneur.
What’s Next YYC will showcase ten exciting Calgary and area based social enterprises that have already won awards or successfully completed a local social enterprise support program.
We are still feeling the exciting energy from last week’s announcement of the Trico Foundation Social Entrepreneurship Centre at the Haskayne School of Business! Check out our top social media posts from the event as well as what was shown in the media.
The Trico Charitable Foundation (TCF) Summer Student program is the first of its kind that I have ever come across – something that lets me pursue my own dreams and financially support me as a full-time employee. This unique opportunity truly gave me the time and space to first realize, and later actualize my vision, which is funny because my start-up essentially helps high school students realize and actualize their potentials.
Having someone in your corner who can see where you want to go, the things that might be holding you back, and the challenges that have yet to come is so key in developing effective mental models and progressing you on your learning journey.
There are a growing number of events connected to social entrepreneurship. Many of them happen in our home city, demonstrating what an incredible hub of activity Calgary is. The Trico Foundation team is pleased to attend many of them and wish we could attend more.
