Here we are after 6 months of ideating, reimagining, and building alternatives to business as usual as Groundswell's 3rd full-program cohort - and now we are ready to celebrate what we've built and share it with you on March 8th at the Social Venture Showcase!
With the support of our team of mentors and staff, we have grown and strengthened the network of social economy and entrepreneurship in Vancouver by putting our hearts and souls into these ventures, and working together. In particular, thank you for the adventure, David LePage, and special thanks and good luck to our community coordinator and dramatic flair facilitator, Emily Huynh, in her new endeavors!
