Social Venture Institute: Alberta has sold out every year! Attendance is limited!

We do things a bit differently here in Alberta. And we also saw more and more people committed to the radical idea that business could be based in social mission and impact. So we partnered with Hollyhock, who for 25 years has been convening investors, innovators, and leaders. Social Venture Institute has contributed to a global movement of socially responsible entrepreneurship. With Social Venture Institute: Alberta, we hope to build on that movement and support the unique needs of Alberta based social- ventures.

SVI: Alberta is for social-venture leaders to build connections with like-minded peers and learn more about socially responsible business in an atmosphere of trust and goodwill. SVI: Alberta is highly interactive and experiential with a strong focus on peer-to-peer learning, working alongside other social-venture leaders in this one-of-a-kind community. Its unique format is designed to achieve out of the box results, and rejuvenate entrepreneurs’ passions and visions.

SVI: Alberta is an immersive experience that is intentionally designed to foster growth. Social Venture leaders are enabled to step away from the day-to-day of their business and focus on fine tuning business strategies, learning best practices, solving problems and building lasting relationships. At the end of just three days, participants will step back into their lives feeling rejuvenated, with a renewed sense of purpose and armed with a network of supportive peers.
