Our Goal: Social Entrepreneurship
CICG takes a Social Entrepreneurship approach, focusing on individuals, companies, and organizations who develop solutions to social, environmental, and other current problems using modern business techniques, and seeking innovative ways to operate and to drive change. The goal is not to earn a profit for our shareholders; rather, the goal is to assist clients in implementing improvements that lead to positive outcomes for their businesses and society.
Our goal is to assist leaders – in business, academia, government and more – to access the tools they need to create meaningful change, inside and out of their organization. We help our clients access public and private funding, create feasible business plans and go-to-market plans, build their internal capacity through training, expand their networks, and extend their capacity by providing on-demand expertise. The full breadth of our services can be read here: http://www.campusinnovation.ca/our-services. By providing a diverse portfolio of professional services and expertise, we help leaders enact dramatic organizational shifts to make their vision a reality.
