e@UBC Impact Stream

    We are now accepting applications to the e@UBC Impact Stream 2018 cohort!

    After five years of successful collaboration between Coast Capital Savings Credit Union and UBC Sauder Centre for Social Innovation & Impact Investing, our entrepreneurial community is moving on to the next stage of our journey. Starting in November 2017 the Coast Capital Savings Innovation Hub social venture accelerator will become an integral part of entrepreneurship@UBC which is the venture accelerator at the University of British Columbia.

    Throughout this year we have been integrating the Coast Capital Savings Innovation Hub and e@UBC programs and we are now officially launching the e@UBC Impact Stream. This will build on the five years success of the social venture accelerator program and be the new home at e@UBC for purpose driven ventures ready to solve the world's most challenging social and environmental issues with commercial solutions that combine business and social goals.

    At every programming stage, the e@UBC Impact Stream is tailored to the distinct challenges social entrepreneurs face, including:
    • finding investors who appreciate the triple bottom line
    • defining and measuring both impact and business success
    • building strong business and impact models that grow together
    • cultivating a collaborative peer community.

    Read more about how you can accelerate your impact and grow your venture with the support of experienced mentors, dedicated student interns and a passionate and dynamic peer community. Ventures that successfully progress through the staged program are eligible for potential seed investment from the UBC Impact Fund.

    Apply to the e@UBC Impact Stream 2018 cohort until October 15!
