About the Investment Readiness Webinars:

Through a partnership with the Investment Readiness Program, Social Innovation Canada (SI Canada) is working to grow and strengthen the social innovation and social finance (SISF) ecosystem by providing information, opportunities, resources, and connections that will help Social Purpose Organizations (SPOs) to become “investment ready”, promote their services, and discuss barriers faced in getting investment ready.
