Profit, People, and Planet – Social Enterprise Fireside Chat

November 19 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Following last year’s successful launch of DC’s social entrepreneurship centre – FastStart SHIFT – this is an opportunity to learn more about social enterprises and how you can focus on both profit and social good while running your business.

By the end of the this session, you will gain inspiration through success stories, and you will discover how FastStart SHIFT can support you to kickstart or pivot a business to start making positive social or environmental impacts!
