TEF Employment Social Enterprise 201 – Disability Inclusion Focus
November 8, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
You’re invited to Employment Social Enterprise 201, a workshop that will provide you with an opportunity to generate, workshop and explore employment social enterprise business ideas. This ESE 201 will focus specifically on supporting entrepreneurs and organizations interested in developing an enterprise that would create inclusive employment opportunities for people with disabilities.
Employment social enterprises are businesses that create training and employment opportunities for people facing barriers to employment, including: people with disabilities, newcomers, and people with mental illness.
The workshop will feature:
- an activity to support you in developing employment social enterprise business ideas
- an activity to enable you to filter business ideas, identifying your highest probability business idea
- an opportunity to workshop your business idea with other aspiring ESE developers
- a Q&A session with a representative of the Toronto Enterprise Fund, Canada’s leading supporter of employment social enterprises.
Note: ESE 201 is well-suited for entrepreneurs and organizations who are ready to explore developing an ESE and have have participated in Employment Social Enterprise 101 or have a basic understanding of ESEs. Upon completion of ESE 201, participants will be well-prepared to apply to participate in TEF’s winter ESE Idea Accelerator program. More details about the ESE idea accelerator can be found here.
Refreshments and a light snack will be provided. If you have any accessibility needs, or any questions about this event, please contact Courtney, TEF Associate Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
