Come and Celebrate Social Entrepreneurs. ChangeUP is a pitch style event for social enterprises on February 28th. Featured social enterprises will share their stories and solutions for some of the toughest community, social, and environmental challenges. Selected social enterprises will have the opportunity to win one of two subsidized spots in Purppl’s six-month acceleration program.
A social enterprise is an organization that sells goods or services to help achieve community, social, or environmental initiatives. It can be for-profit, not-for-profit, or a hybrid, but a majority of the profits must be directed to achieving social objectives.
Don’t miss your chance to be inspired, make connections, and learn how local social enterprises are making an impact in the community. Doors open at 6pm for networking with some light snacks provided by Start Fresh Kitchen and refreshments. The event will start at 7pm.
