What a night!
Groundswell's third cohort shared their budding social ventures of all shapes and sizes with the community this March, filling the room up to the brim with energy and fuelling the movement towards social impact & change making entrepreneurship in Vancouver. Review the photos and some virtual shoutouts below to experience the night, and check out all the new ventures this cohort of Groundswell participants have created together over the last 6 months, on the alumni projects page.
Co-op Radios's Each for All Show recorded the event and interviewed 2 recent alumni, Amanda Slater of Rebel Soup, and Conlan Mansfield of Salish Sea Movement Society, with Paola Qualizza, co-creator at Groundswell, on a recent show - tune in to hear what these two emerging social entrepreneurs have been up to in the weeks since the Showcase (a lot!) and what Groundswell has planned for the upcoming months...
