Social Enterprise

Canada’s premiere event recognizing social enterprises

The biennial Social EnterPrize celebrates Canadian organizations demonstrating best practices, impact and innovation in social enterprise. Created by the Trico Charitable Foundation in 2011, the Social EnterPrize recognizes organizations that blend the social and the entrepreneurial by using business models to solve social problems.

Since 2019, the Trico Charitable Foundation and the Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary, have partnered in presenting this event. The next Social EnterPrize will be in 2021.

Everything you need to know – in one hour

Haskayne Hour is bridging the gap between academic research and real-world business problems.

Focused on delivering and discussing new research and its application to industry in a short timeframe, Haskayne Hour leaves attendees with applicable, new knowledge and better business practice.

Distinguished Business Leaders Summit

Crises shake us to our core and present unique challenges for the ethical leader. And now we are facing crises none have seen before.

To respond to these unprecedented times, the Haskayne School of Business, the Calgary Chamber and Calgary Foundation invite you to join us for an online summit of distinguished and high-profile leaders.

Due to the measures in place to stop the spread of COVID-19, we have postponed our annual Distinguished Business Leaders Award gala until 2021, but the need to celebrate ethical leaders hasn’t changed. In fact, we feel it is more important than ever.
