Shifting Gears

Bridging disciplines.  
Creating change-makers.

Over the past 3 years, the UBC Social Enterprise Conference has introduced more than 900 delegates to the concept of Social Entrepreneurship. These conference participants have learned how to create game-changing solutions, and have been exposed to the importance of scalability.

The underlying passion for solving a social or environmental issue is the basis for success in any impact driven business. The 2018 UBC Social Enterprise Conference will challenge delegates to think deeper about issues faced by society, both local and global. Our theme, “Shifting Gears: Drive The Change,” will inspire students to dream up their own innovative ideas and solutions to current societal dilemmas.

This year, we are shifting gears and focusing on the issues, before exploring solutions. Our conference will provide our delegates with a toolbox which will enable them to realize their passions through Social Enterprise. Whether that be through our company and issue based workshops or through the wise words of our keynote speakers – we want to challenge their existing ideas so they can reach new, innovative and creative solutions.

Our conference brings together the beginners and experts of social entrepreneurship into an environment of learning and collaboration. Joining them is a diverse network of professionals representing various companies and issues on the beautiful campus of The University of British Columbia.

On March 10th, find out how to become a driver of change at the UBC Social Enterprise Conference.

Conference 2017:
Accelerating Impact

“Through the experience of the conference and the presence of multiple thought-provoking social entrepreneurs, you will walk away with two major lessons that are:

 

  1. Scale is not solely determined by organization’s size or budget, but by the change it helps to usher in
  2. Collective impact is crucial in the process of creating change.”
