Social Enterprise CINCY Week Kicks Off With A Daylong Summit On October 3



A social enterprise utilizes a combination of for-profit and non-profit based models for improving society. Rather than depend on charitable donations, it relies on the income earned from sales or services. And it reinvests its income to maintain long-term financial sustainability. 

Greater Cincinnati has become home to several social enterprises and more people are realizing the value of the concept. October 3 through 8 is Social Enterprise Week in Cincinnati. The week kicks off October 3 with the Social Enterprise CINCY Summit.

Joining us to discuss the importance of social enterprises and to give us a preview of Social Enterprise Week are Flywheel Social Enterprise Hub Executive Director Bill Tucker; Flywheel Communications Specialist Jess Kerr; and Executive Director of Bad Girl Ventures, Nancy Aichholz.

The Social Enterprise CINCY Summit is taking place October 3 at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. For more information and registration, click here
