Do you think outside the box? Are you among the first to try new and promising products or services? Do you like to be part of change that makes a difference for the better?

Join the Institute for Nonprofit Innovation & Excellence (INIE) as we hold a fireside chat with the SIE CoLab team. During our chat, we will explore tools and techniques used by social innovators and entrepreneurs that lead to sustainable social and economic change for communities.

Afterwards, meet us at INIE (3rd floor of the TCC Center for Innovation) for an Open House where we will continue our conversation with changemakers who'd like to learn more and get involved in a new way of creating sustainable impact.

The SIE CoLab is a hybrid social enterprise whose goal is to transform an unsustainable, extractive-economic-growth-centered way of life that is endangering our future. Their focus is on catalyzing and facilitating the transition to a sustainable world that equally values and connects social, economic, and environmental priorities.

Today's challenges need a new "operating system"... one that will catalyze and sustain change by integrating best thinking, practice, and innovation. The SIE CoLab's innovative model advances communities and leaders to the next level by advancing transformative solutions.

Why is this important? By looking through a "different window", we encourage the convergence of systems- social, environmental and economic- to work together for the greater good.
