Our Social Enterprise program is an implementation of the Social Enterprise Southwest (SESW) program of Pillar Nonprofit Network. SESW promotes the flourishing of social enterprise in Southwestern Ontario, offering profesional development, coaching and connections to investors for enterprises interested in achieving social or environmental outcomes and maximizing revenue.

There are three different components to our Social Enterprise program:

Social Enterprise Workshop Series

These workshops will educate those interested in learning about social enterprise fundamentals, measuring social impact, and creating a social enterprise.

Storytelling workshops

Keep your eye out for our Storytelling and Digital storytelling workshops! You will have access to professionals that will help you tell your impact stories well.

Accelerator and Pitch competition

The accelerator and Pitch Competition in the Fall will allow teams and individuals to pitch their social enterprise ideas! Keep checking for more details around the location and the application process!
