SIRG Symposium “Pathways and Barriers to Social Enterprise Success” overwhelming success
On February 27, the Social Innovation Research Group (SIRG) was pleased to welcome over 55 guests to our first symposium, “Pathways and Barriers to Social Enterprise Success.” The symposium was a reflection of six months of field research, during which SIRG interviewed dozens of social enterprises, non-profit organizations, research institutes, academics and members of government. The symposium was based both on our field work, and on the observation that to accelerate social enterprise, we must consider all the players together, rather than looking at them as isolated organizations.
With audience members from each of the listed groups we have worked with, we were pleased to present what we believe was a meaningful dialogue between practitioners and stakeholders in social enterprise.
