The "Ottawa Social Entrepreneurs" is a group for social entrepreneurs in the National Capital Region to connect, learn, share and collaborate with each other.

Our vision is to stimulate social innovation and development of strong and sustainable social enterprises in the National Capital Region.

“A social enterprise is an organization that applies commercial strategies to maximize improvements in human and environmental well-being, rather than maximizing profits for external shareholders. Social enterprises can be structured as a for-profit or non-profit, and may take the form of a co-operative, mutual organization, a social business, or a charity organization.” - Wikipedia

If you have started or thinking of starting a social business / social enterprise, or interested in learning more, please join us to network, meet other social entrepreneurial and innovative minds, and learn more about the social entrepreneurs and social enterprises in our region.

We organize events to help our members connect, share ideas, and create an encouraging, inspiring and empowering environment!

Interested in disruptive thinking and changing the world? Drop by our next meeting! Looking forward to meeting you!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
