The 2024 Social Finance Forum at the Social Innovation Hub

Social Innovation
In-person Virtual
12 - 13 Jun 2024

In partnership with Future of Good, Innovate Calgary is pleased to present the 2024 Social Finance Forum June 12th-13th at the Social Innovation Hub. This event is designed for anyone interested in the social finance ecosystem: investors, funders, innovators, non-profit leaders, and ecosystem partners.

The social finance ecosystem in Canada, a market valued at more than $20 billion, plays a key role in the seismic shift needed to re-imagine capital for a sustainable and equitable future. Offering a learning space, a forum for leaders and teams to connect, gain knowledge, and draw on insights for action are the intentions for the 2024 Social Finance Forum as we enter this new era of capital for impact. Through social finance, we can accelerate solutions by creatively mobilizing private, public, community, and philanthropic capital.

As an integral part of this ecosystem, Innovate Calgary houses UCeed investment funds on behalf of the University of Calgary, the largest university-based fund of its kind in Canada. UCeed is a group of early-stage investment funds accelerating startup companies to advance problem-solving research, create jobs and fuel the economy. Another key pillar of the social finance ecosystem is the Social Innovation Hub. It supports impact-first founders with coaching, expert advice, creative brand storytelling and coworking space. Supporting the ecosystem in becoming a more inclusive community is also foundational to the mission of the Social Innovation Hub.

This is a hybrid event. An optional kick off mixer will be hosted June 11th and the first day will be hosted in-person on June 12th at the Social Innovation Hub. The second day (June 13th) will be virtual.
