The Centre for Social Innovation & Impact Investing (Sauder S3i) aims to build intellectual and human capacity by linking knowledge with action to further the field of sustainability and social innovation. We address timely challenges, with solutions that have real world impact.
We run a variety of programs focused on providing learning opportunities for undergraduate, MBA and graduate students, as well as incubation for social entrepreneurs and ventures.
The Centre for Social Innovation & Impact Investing welcomed the first cohort to the Coast Capital Savings Innovation Hub 12-month accelerator program for social ventures. Recently we celebrated their accomplishments at the Social Venture Re-vue, an inspiring evening where entrepreneurs shared the stories of their journeys over the past year and their plans for the future.
Propel 2014 was an engaging conference where our keynotes and panelists shared their experiences on the different stages of growing social ventures. Participants were also able to interact with the five social ventures that were chosen to be a part of the Coast Capital Savings Innovation Hub. This year's Propelling Social Ventures Conference is scheduled for April 1, 2015.
