As you may have heard, November 16, is going to be a big day for Ottawa’s social enterprise sector! CSED is bringing back Unleashed: The Social Enterprise Event in order to showcase the incredible work of the sector over the past year, and we want you to be there.
The one day conference will provide opportunities for attendees to meet and buy from local social enterprises, learn about different aspects of the sector, and discover how they can generate social impact. So whether you’re part of an organization interested in working with or buying from social enterprise, a business owner thinking about transitioning to social enterprise, a social entrepreneur, a stakeholder within the sector, or simply someone who wants to learn more about social enterprise, this is the event you need to attend. To help you understand why, consider these 3 questions.
What do Money, Markets, People, and Ideas have in common?
Simple, each of them is one of the 4 themes of this year’s event. Whether you want to learn about trends in impact investing, new connections in the markets of social enterprise, how people make social enterprise happen, or recent innovation in the sector, Unleashed has something to offer you.
Where else can you find 120 people and 18 social enterprises in one room?
At last year’s event, we brought over 120 participants together to network, learn, and share knowledge around the growing social enterprise sector. At our SE Marketplace, 12 social enterprises were showcasing their products and services for these attendees to learn about and purchase on site. Attendees couldn’t get enough from the marketplace, and we’re looking to create the opportunity again this year with a total of 18 social enterprises!
What’s better than a great event, new connections, and expert knowledge?
Getting it all and knowing you paid less than full price, that's what.
On Wednesday, August 23, one day before our official launch, we will be hosting a one-day exclusive sale of discounted tickets for Unleashed, and only those who sign up for our mailing list will have access to them.
