About the Hub Poster

About the hub

Today’s pressing challenges are bigger than any one individual, company, sector, or institution can solve. The Social Innovation Hub (SIH) draws upon the expertise, experience, and input of diverse social entrepreneurs, innovators, and partners to re-imagine what innovation means, who an innovator is and how innovation happens.  

Guided by this vision to work differently, we connect changemakers with community-led programming, coaching, mentorship, and access to key capital, space and networks to help launch and scale their innovation and impact. 

Through this work, we aim to support you as we build a more inclusive and equitable economy in Alberta and strengthen the resiliency of our communities.
