Building Capacity Through Social Innovation & Enterprise
There’s a ton of buzz around innovation – it’s inextricably linked to success. This episode kicks off a series dedicated to UWHH’s Social Innovation Lab, launching in March 2020, where five agencies will use Design Thinking to develop social enterprise projects. Mike introduces the S.I.L. and sits down with Shann McGrail, executive director at Haltech, one of 18 regional innovation centres in Ontario. They talk about navigating the path to profitability, from start-up to scale-up; the impact of making strategic connections; and building resilience in the non-profit sector by creating financially sustainable social enterprises.
