At the MacEwan University Social Innovation Institute, we connect you with experts and innovators who support your commitment to positive change. We convene events that encourage social innovation and collaboration, bring together community partners for learning and research and host social labs where prototype solutions are developed. Let us introduce you to the students, faculty and other changemakers who have the expertise and creativity to move your ideas forward.
Social innovation, social labs, social entrepreneurs—these are exciting times for people who want to influence the world in positive ways. Here are a few examples of the types of projects we support:
A new university graduate has the seed of an idea for a tech start-up, but wants to make sure it is a sustainable, socially responsible enterprise.
A group of neighbours who sponsored a refugee family wants to support these new Canadians in getting a business idea off the ground.
An arts organization wants to showcase the creativity of youth in the community while raising funds to support their operations.
