May is Social Enterprise month, so we kicked off the month early with a breakfast event on April 28! This wasn’t just a regular breakfast though; it was an opportunity to feed minds!
We brought together entrepreneurs, executive directors, non-profit organizations and industry to celebrate social enterprise in a uniquely formatted event. Attendees joined in conversation around sharing and learning about profit generation and new revenue for non-profits and for social entrepreneurs.
This was the first time we deliberately brought together non-profit leaders with social entrepreneurs. The majority of non-profits aren’t always looking for enterprising models and entrepreneurs aren’t always looking to form non-profiting businesses. Bringing the two together is important because innovation comes from diverse perspectives.
Thank you for your hard work yesterday! Here are the pictures from the harvest of the conversation … Love the themes that have popped up! This is just the beginning #cityofpg . Please feel free to share and comment.#communitymatters
