Is your non-profit organization thinking about
starting or expanding a social enterprise?
Enterprising Non-Profits Toronto (enp-TO) may be for you!
We provide matching technical assistance grants of up to $10,000 for planning activities to help
non-profit organizations start and grow social enterprises. To apply, you must attend an orientation.
Youth-led, youth-driven and/or youth-centred non-profit organizations are especially encouraged to participate, as some of the funds in this Round are from the Capital One Youth Entrepreneurship Fund and are dedicated to social enterprises managed by or serving youth.
Sessions will be held for organizations starting new social enterprises:
Wednesday, September 26th, 9:30 to 4:30 - $100
Tuesday, October 2nd, 9:30 to 4:30 - $100
At which attendees will work together to explore how social enterprise can meet their needs: by conducting an organizational readiness assessment, reviewing business ideas and developing a mock business plan.
Or, for organizations expanding mature social enterprises:
Wednesday, October 3rd, 9:30 – 1 - $50
Designed as a networking and shared learning session.
