Description

Join us for an inspiring evening of learning and networking with Calgary's leading social entrepreneurs

Innovating for Shared Prosperity will inspire and connect Calgary's social entrepreneurs to accelerate their important work. The evening will kick off with exhibits and mingling at 5:00 pm.

At 6:00 pm we'll move into the ballroom for dinner and a keynote presentation by City of Calgary city manager, Jeff Fielding, who will share the ways in which Calgary is supporting innovation and creating a resilient local economy.

Following Jeff's presentation, six local changemakers will showcase how their initiatives are building thriving communities, creating good jobs, and doing business differently. At 7:00 pm you'll hear from:

  • Sean Crump, Universal Access

  • Hannah Cree, CMNGD

  • Alexi Davis, Prospect

  • Mitch Thomson, Olds Institute

  • Kyle Stretch, Local Investing YYC

At 8:00 pm we'll begin our World Café dialogue, helping you connect with presenters and other guests to identify opportunities to collaborate to advance the new economy.

This event is a must for anyone leading a mission-driven business, social enterprise or cooperative. Come prepared to be informed and energized, to share your own ideas and identify opportunities to collaborate with like-minded social entrepreneurs!
