I believe in the power of social enterprise to make our community stronger, and I see it everyday working with inspiring, purpose-driven entrepreneurs. A social enterprise is a for profit or nonprofit business that has both a financial return and a societal impact, either through the products, services and donations they provide or the people they employ. SocialVentures serves 130+ social enterprises in Ohio, providing resources, advisory programs, and community engagement that empowers these innovators to do good and do well. It’s an exciting time. The Heartland is the place to do business, and the great people of our community are the heart and soul of our success. With the advancement of social enterprise, we build equity, improve lives, our planet and our economy. Please join us and amplify people, purpose and prosperity! Learn more at socialventurescbus.com.
