Over 30 top business and social organizations and groups are strategic affiliates of the SociaLIGHT Conference and while many organizations exist already to support entrepreneurship, the entrepreneur community in Canada remains largely fragmented.
Our belief is that by bringing together young leaders & entrepreneurs (as well as the organizations which support them) - together at one event - we could create a platform where these groups could connect with one another in a meaningful way that would be both personally and professionally beneficial.
The SociaLIGHT Conference is also a conscious full spectrum initiative that encourages shifting from "profit only" business models to entrepreneurship that embodies the triple bottom line of: "People. Planet. Profit."
We also aim to be an event that: (1) moves from being the typical status quo passive conference to one that makes positive measurable social impact and (2) encourages principled action.
When you buy a ticket know that you are part of supporting sustainable solutions and growth of both local and international entrepreneurs as a portion of our proceeds will be going to 1 local entrepreneur and an entrepreneur initiative in South America through the Planeterra Foundation's Small Business Development Fund.
Make sure to sign up for our newsletter and get on the SociaLIGHT Hotlist so you can be the first on the waitinglist to buy tickets before they are sold out!
We encourage you to attend the SociaLIGHT Conference and we look forward to a valuable and successful 2012 event!
To your continued success,
