Social Innovation and Venture Creation
Social Innovation and Venture Creation (SIVC) is closely aligned with Laurier’s mission of ‘inspiring lives of leadership and purpose.’ All across our campuses, exciting and meaningful projects are occurring through the energy and vision of inspired faculty, staff, students, and community partners. SIVC facilitates and supports ‘social ventures’ designed to address a complex social issue with sustainable, collaborative and impactful strategies and approaches. This work may include the creation of a social enterprise (for-profit, non-profit, co-op or other business model), a social innovation (technology, process, service, or concept), intrapreneurship (working from within an established framework to reconceive of and improve the outcomes and social benefits), or other approaches to sustainably improve or transform our social sphere for the better (e.g., advocacy, activism, policy work, knowledge sharing, etc.).
