Vancity, in partnership with SFU Public Square, presents a morning event dedicated to building Business Innovation in the Local Economy where Vancity asks and businesses prove that values-based business is viable.
Join us for thought-provoking insights from Michael Shuman on the Power of the Local Economy; get practical tips through peer-to-peer presentations on Growing your Business by taking a values-based approach; and roll-up your sleeves at interactive how-to sessions that promise no trade-offs when you Build your Bottom Line while Building your Community and the Local Economy.
As a community credit union Vancity understands the power of local dollars. Our members’ deposits turn into member loans, so that more wealth gets invested, shared and spent in our communities. It’s called the local multiplier. And it creates strong businesses, communities and economies.
Business Innovation in the Local Economy acknowledges the powerful role Vancity business members play in creating positive economic, social and environmental impact in our communities. If you are thinking about establishing a business, own one, or are considering growing your business, join us on October 23rd to unlock the potential of networking, sharing and learning based on insights from local businesses and partners.
Business Innovation in the Local Economy is one of two Vancity public engagement events raising awareness of values-based banking™ and a values-based approach to business. Vancity’s Vancouver events add to a global series of engagement initiatives and social media activity focusing on the theme #BankingOnValues, as part of the first international awareness campaign of the Global Alliance for Banking on Values (GABV). Vancity was the first Canadian financial institution invited to join the GABV.
