Social Enterprise Catalyst Comes To Nanaimo


 4:00 – 5:30 PM

If you manage or are a board member with a charity or other not-for-profit that operates a business as a social enterprise, did you know you could be eligible to present your business pitch at the upcoming Catalyst Gala for a chance at $50,000 in cash and technical supports to help you succeed!

The Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce is excited to host this free event March 3rd for the Catalyst Gala on May 20th at the Port Theatre.  Catalyst is one of a series of events taking place over the next few months to build capacity and strength in non-profits.  Learn through these events how to reduce your need for charitable giving and public sector support.

A social enterprise is defined as a business whose mission, conduct and revenue stream address a cultural, social and/or environmental need as their principal goal.  Profits from the sale of goods and services are targeted to specific causes.  Success stories abound in the world of social enterprise and Catalyst showcases, supports and inspires these throughout Vancouver Island. 

Join us March 3rd and hear from a panel of experts in the field, funders, Catalyst event sponsors, and operators from some of our local social enterprises.  Learn more about the world of social enterprise, how it works, and what the business model is.  Find out if your organization can qualify for the $50,000 in cash and technical support available through Catalyst. 

To RSVP and pre-register (no cost) for the launch: or call 250-756-1191
