United Way is partnering with the University of Calgary to offer the UCeed Social Impact Fund. The fund will offer pre-seed and seed stage social enterprises with much-needed gap funding to help move them from research/ideation to commercialization. Through our investment in this fund, and a range of supports that we are building in collaboration with the University of Calgary, United Way aims to accelerate the creation of more enterprises focused on social innovation in Calgary.
We are launching a quarterly newsletter for The Social Impact Lab AB in late July. Don't miss out on these exciting updates!
In the spirit of our journey to promote reconciliation, we would like to honour the truth of our shared history and acknowledge Treaty 7 territory and the traditional lands of the Blackfoot Confederacy, that includes the Kainai, Siksika, and Piikani First Nations.
We acknowledge the traditional lands of the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda, including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations. We would also like to recognize the Métis people, and the Inuit people who have made their home here in Mohk’insstsis, also known as Calgary.
