Next Economy Conversations: Jeff Cyr of Raven Indigenous Capital Partners

As we look to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, we know that now, more than ever, we cannot go back to the way things were. From the climate crisis to deep social inequalities, the challenges of our time require us to build the Next Economy – one that is sustainable, equitable, and prosperous for all.

Next Economy Conversations, the Centre for Social Innovation’s monthly event series, is your chance to hear from incredible leaders helping to build this Next Economy. Learn about their work as well as their personal journeys, learnings, and visions for the future.

On Thursday June 25, Tonya Surman, CEO of the Centre for Social Innovation, will sit down (virtually, of course!) with Jeff Cyr, Managing Partner at Raven Indigenous Capital Partners.

About our guest, Jeffrey Cyr

For nearly 20 years, Jeffrey Cyr has provided strategic leadership for Indigenous, not-for-profit, and government organizations. He is Métis from Manitoba’s Red River Valley, and a proud husband and father. Jeff is a co-founder and Managing Partner of Raven Indigenous Capital Partners and the Chair of the Indigenous Innovation Council at the Indigenous Innovation Initiative. He has helped create and implement the community-driven outcomes contract (a unique pay-for-success social finance model) and the Indigenous Solutions Lab process, which earned him an Ashoka Fellowship. Jeff’s work enables Indigenous social innovation and builds Indigenous social finance in Canada, empowering Indigenous communities and innovators.

About our host, Tonya Surman

Tonya Surman is fuelled by her belief in the power of collaboration and belonging. She knows that putting the right people in a room is only the first step in creating real change. You also need to build a culture where everyone knows that they have value and a voice to radically redesign our futures. She did this with the Centre for Social Innovation, which re-invented the workplace by collecting social purpose organizations under one roof. And it’s what she is doing with CSI’s affiliate charity, the Social Innovation Institute and Social Innovation Canada,  unlocking the social innovation community to get at the root causes of problems. She knows building relationships between people is the foundation for a better world. It’s also a heck of a lot of fun!

Please note that we’ll use Zoom to connect. Details will be sent to confirmed registrants via email before the event.
