Social entrepreneurs pursue innovative solutions to provide measurable impact and value to identified social problems.

Those who do so in the not-for-profit space have much to learn and understand as they pursue careers in the public service sector and expand their involvement in the community. This session will explore the world of not-for-profits – the myths connected to them, how they differ from private, government and for-profit sectors and how the key concepts, drivers and legislative leadership style inherent to this sector is shaping the new thinking influencing efficacious and emerging social entrepreneurs.
Rita Egizii is a co-founder of Wellspring Calgary – the first community cancer support centre in Southern Alberta – and Complementary Cancer Choices. She brings a wealth of knowledge on not-for-profit board governance and not-for-profit social entrepreneurship. Join us as Rita talks about the challenges and rewards of being a social entrepreneur. What does it take? What are some unique business models that allow you to do great things while giving back directly to people who need a helping hand?
