What we're about
The "Ottawa Social Entrepreneurs" group is now closed.
“ A social enterprise is an organization or venture that applies commercial strategies to maximize improvements in human and environmental well-being, rather than maximizing profits for external shareholders. They are primarily focused on creating social (including environmental, cultural or recreational) impact through sustainable revenue generating models either directly, or by channeling (most) of their profits towards their social mission. 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.”
Best wishes to all who are working on social enterprise in Ottawa.
