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.

Explore the investment readiness journey of 10 SPOs (charities, nonprofits, social enterprises, co-operatives, and for-profit social enterprises), learn from thought leaders and experts in the social finance field, and connect with others in the ecosystem during our virtual, live events.
