startGBC Social Innovation Lunch & Learn
November 15, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
How can you turn your personal social experiences into something meaningful? Can you still make a good living running a social innovation/enterprise? How do you go about establishing one? What resources are in the community to help support you?
In collaboration with the Centre for Social Innovation, startGBC invites you to attend this lunch and learn to discover the answers to these and other questions you might have. Mix with like minded students over pizza and perhaps you might find a peer to work with in helping to build your enterprise.
Priority is given to current George Brown Students and Alumni.
