Don’t miss these two, late-February, Group Social Ventures Events.
The first is Power Plant, a sociable networking event in Vancouver perfect for sustainable business leaders, social entrepreneurs, eco-adventurers, green artists and media activists. Power Plant’s framework is such: each presenter has 10 PowerPoint slides which are displayed for 20 seconds each; giving them only 3 minutes and 20 seconds to reveal their story in a nutshell. These time constraints are similar to those employed by PechaKucha- it effectively whittles each presentation down to the essentials, forcing the presenters to creatively respond to the unique timeline and makes for an engaging evening.
Our friends over at LimeLight are producing the evening, which will be held at the always awesome Waldorf Hotel on February 21, 2012. With an impressive partial roster of presenters, tickets won’t last long.
The following week brings us to the latest in the HiVE series: Start-up & Growth Resources for Your Changemaking Enterprise! In this session, experienced funders will help you explore your potential resources as someone looking to start or grow your enterprise. Just two short weeks away, the event takes place on February 28, 2012 from 6pm to 8pm at HiVE.
All parties involved in the production of both events are doing great things for Vancouver’s green economy. Come support them and let them help you better support yourself.
