In June, Scale Collaborative hosted Connect Money Impact: an in-person day of inspiration, learning, and connection with the underlying purpose of sharing learning, and providing support and funds to social enterprises.
The event helps move forward all that is possible when we connect money to impact. Scale Collaborative helps non-profits, social enterprises, local businesses, and other members of the social impact ecosystem align revenue generation, spending, and investing in creating greater community impact and in nurturing a social economy ecosystem that places people and the planet at the centre of the economy.
Sessions explored an array of topics, including investing to accelerate climate solutions, financing social enterprises and diverse entrepreneurs, integrating impact into financial models, models for building community wealth, how to measure impact, and more. Without a doubt, it was a pleasure to hold this impactful day, and it will be exciting to see the ripples that continue to come out of it.
Finally, a huge thank you to our Momentum Partners, the University of Victoria Impact Investing Hub, Vancity, Coastal Community Credit Union, and MakeWay Foundation. Find all the Connect Money Impact 2022 partners on page 8 of the summary.
