Social Venture Showcase #7

  • Performance Works (map)

It takes a village to raise a social venture - and this is the town hall party!

Tickets are by donation - Pay What You Can and support the movement by building our bursary fund!

On March 6th, we invite you to celebrate with us as we showcase the incredible hard work of Groundswell's latest cohort of big-hearted budding entrepreneurs.  This creative crew will reveal their social ventures, stories and projects to you from the stage and invite you to be some of their first fans from their marketplace tables. There will be something for everybody....

We've got writers, art parties, builders, multicultural and raw food eats, a space in the future for gender queer folk,  skill sharing communities and (viewer discretion is advised) custom sex toys.

What's happening at Performance Works on March 6th:

5:30: Doors open - don't forget to get your name on the list and register!

5:30 - 9:00: Marketplace
Check out demo booths for the new ventures, meet the entrepreneurs and see what a few of our past program participants are up to with a special mini alumni market!

6:00 - 7:30: Presentations
Each member of this year's Social Venture cohort will share their story and social business idea to the world for the first time!

9:00: Marketplace and bar sales close.

There will be a cash bar, food for sale, and complimentary snacks.   

Come see what these fine folks have built for themselves and their community over the past 6 months!

Bring your friends and grow the movement with us!  This is our chance to show the world who we are and what we beleive in: a more beautiful world that we're building together with social ventures like the ones you'll meet tonight where all of our unique talents get to shine in a local, vibrant, and collaborative economy.  Tonight you'll also get the chance to become a Groundswell member, learn more about our refreshed social venture and self employment programs, and get a taste for our unique Test Market model.

We're looking forward to meeting you there!
