Event description

Description

Join Trico Charitable Foundation at EconoUs2017 for an evening celebrating how doing business and doing good for people and planet are one in the same. Trico Foundation will be awarding two Canadian social enterprises, Fogo Island Inn and Furniture Bank, $100,000 each for demonstrating best practices, impact and innovation in
Doing Business Differently
.

These recipients will then be joined by two past recipients – Potluck Café and Catering and Mission Possible – for a panel conversation about alignment, the ‘secret sauce’ behind their success. The discussion will highlight the power of aligning the three EconoUs2017 themes, and aligning concepts that are too often thought of as mutually exclusive: using strong business models while also strategically utilizing grants, being a lead organization while also embracing community partnerships, and addressing the immediate needs of those in poverty while also seeking systemic change.

This event is a must for anyone leading a mission-driven business, social enterprise or cooperative. The evening will kick off in the lobby of Hotel Arts at 6:00pm with exhibits and mingling with social entrepreneurs and community leaders that are innovating for shared prosperity. At 7:15pm we'll move into the ballroom for dinner and the Trico Social EnterPrize awards.

EconoUs2017, is a 3 day gathering of community leaders from coast to coast, celebrating the heart and soul of local economies. To see the full program and to register for EconoUs2017 visit here.
