The Centre for Social Innovation and Impact Investing (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.
In January 2013 the Centre for Social Innovation and 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.
The Coast Capital Savings Innovation Hub: a unique business accelerator brings together early stage social ventures with BC's social innovators, seasoned entrepreneurs, investors, faculty, alumni, and entrepreneurial students.
