Session Title: Sweet Sustainable Social Enterprise - Why Is This So Damn Hard To Pull Off? 

Come join Haven and Youvolution in the beautiful backyard at Createscape on Tillery St. for a conversation with some inspiring local female impact entrepreneurs (that's #girlpreneurs for short).

The social enterprise movement is growing in both for-profit and non-profit circles, and thousands of college students are graduating each year with the intent to start their own social enterprise. However, there are still lots of questions to be answered.

Can organizations truly be self-sustaining and intentionally impactful? We'll take a deep dive into some that are, and some that are well on their way. We'll also have a brass tacks conversation about the challenges. We hope you come away with new understanding, new connections and inspiration too.
