We are delighted to be featured as a case study for Social Innovation Canada‘s Investment Readiness Webinar series, to demonstrate how Social Purpose Orgs can become investment ready to drive meaningful change.
The webinar takes place on Tuesday, Apr 11, 2023, 9:30am PT/12:30pm ET.
We’ll share how Purppl secured investment to accelerate our impact as we support social entrepreneurs and impact leaders to build enterprises and initiatives that address the root causes of systemic inequality. We’ll also talk about the journey to becoming co-owners of Thrive Impact Fund.
After a brief presentation about our investment readiness journey, Purppl Managing Director Andrew Greer will be joined for a panel discussion by Kristi Fairholm Mader, Managing Director of Thrive Impact Fund and Director of Innovation and Initiatives at Scale Collaborative; Sue Manzuik, Community Engagement Specialist with Interior Savings Credit Union; and Leanne Hammond, Executive Director of Community Foundation of North Okanagan. The panel will be moderated by Purppl Brand & Communications Strategist and Entrepreneur In Residence Hilary Henegar.
This event is for anyone interested in learning more about the investment readiness journey of SPOs – whether you’re a social entrepreneur, investor, policymaker, or simply passionate about creating social impact.
