Since November, the hard-working ventures in Slingshot 2, RADIUS Ventures’ flagship 6-month accelerator, have learned, tested, grown, challenged, and laughed with each other. Supported by Vancity, the Ventures program finds and amplifies top emerging social ventures. As this second cohort wraps up, you’re invited to a community celebration – part RADIUS family reunion, part social innovation mixer!

Come on out if you:

  • want to learn about and celebrate these 8 social impact ventures
  • want to connect with social entrepreneurs who are in the thick of things – share experiences, lessons learned, and helpful connections
  • want to help us say thank you to the presenters, mentors, and supporters who have contributed to this Slingshot cohort
  • are interested in the Slingshot program and want to find out more
  • like spending time with a lot of fun, passionate innovators!
