Workshop Season is Upon Us…

We are trying something a little different this Spring and we can’t wait for you to join us!

 Enp-AB is pleased to partner with enp-Canada and Innoweave to offer three exciting events to assist you on your social enterprise journey. We hope that these three opportunities will offer organizations at different stages in the social enterprise development path an opportunity to learn more and provide them with the resources they need to continue on the social enterprise path. The three events are:

  •        March 20th, 2014- Introduction to Social Enterprise

          This webinar, hosted by enp Canada in partnership with  Innoweave and presented by David LePage, Accelerating Social Impact, will provide an introduction to Social Enterprise featuring examples of social enterprises that support a range of outcomes (e.g. social inclusion, environmental sustainability, child development, employment and others).

The content in this webinar is a requirement to participate in the following social enterprise workshops.


  •       April 9th, 2014- Social Enterprise Opportunity Identification Session

Got an idea for a social enterprise, but not sure if it’s a good one? Looking to choose between one of many ideas? Looking to develop some more ideas that you might launch?

Join enp Canada and our partner Innoweave for the Social Enterprise Opportunity Identification distance workshop, presented by David LePage of Accelerating Social Impact, to learn more about what makes a good Social Enterprise, how to hone your idea, and how to prepare your organization to take your idea to feasibility and market studies

This live web-based workshop will help prepare organizations to attend workshop number 3 on developing your social enterprise idea (note: while only one registration per organization is necessary, the workshop is designed around exercises to be worked through with 3-4 team members).

Interested organizations are encouraged to attend one or both of above Social Enterprise webinars in preparation for the workshop below
