Social Venture Circuit is a non-profit organization with the mission to provide educational resources and a peer community for social enterprises and changemakers. The idea to build this community started in April 2020 and we officially incorporated as a non-profit organization in August 2020 to help both for-profit and non-profit social enterprises to achieve and grow their social purpose goals. We continue to build community relationships and our research to serve you better. Your insight and experience is invaluable so reach out and share your story.

On November 19, 2020, we hosted our first Social Enterprise Day conference. It was a great day of education and networking with attendees from all over Canada and even around the world! It is our goal to make this a tradition with more participants who are setting great examples of social impact and partners celebrating the growth of the social enterprise sector.

Currently, we are hosting free Social Ventures Mastermind sessions regularly for impact-focused peer learning sessions. Behind the scenes, we are also working on the launch of programming and resources in Spring 2021.

Our mission

We believe that social enterprise business models have great power to succeed and create positive impact for the world. It is our goal to support social entrepreneurs and changemakers with their vision and journey to make the world a better place.
