Social Enterprise Heroes – Evening of April 16, 2014

During Heroes, we focus our attention for one evening on the incredible work of several social enterprises. We seek to understand and address some of their major challenges in effectively creating impact. Challenges that we can learn from together – and challenges which can often be overcome with the right combination of financial support & expertise. Our social enterprises leave Heroes having a deeper understanding of their business, seeing challenges and opportunities for what they are, and with the right combination of tools & resources needed to create change more effectively.

And we do this all in a fun and informative way – a “pitch” competition, complete with our heroic panel of non-profit and for-profit advisors and a carefully selected roster of promising social enterprises. There is a keynote speaker to inspire and inform, and the presentation of a Top Hero award which recognizes a specific individual achievement or contribution. There is also a Marketplace (tradeshow) and a networking reception.
