One of Social Delta’s friends, Plastics For Change, has launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise money to launch their global platform to support a fair market economy for those on the globe who make a living collecting plastic from the world’s oceans and beaches.
The brain behind this concept is Andrew Almack, and we’ve been working with Andrew for several months and have been amazed by his knowledge, drive, and commitment to this issue. Social Delta has no doubt that this business will significantly improve the lives of thousands of individuals living in poverty, while simultaneously help to clean the world’s water of a growing plastic menace.
Join Social Delta as a contributor to the Indiegogo campaign today, and learn more about how Plastics For Change is a force for good on our planet.
The Canadian Business Network (CBN), created and maintained by the Canadian Federal Government, offers a wide array of support to start-up businesses.
Recognizing the unique needs of social enterprise, they have created a dedicated portal for entrepreneurs using businesses to address a social need. This social enterprise portal offers links to resources available across Canada from community based support organizations and from various levels of government. The links and resources include technical support on everything from how to do market research or write a business plan, to funding support for start-up costs or human resource needs.
The Federal Government, in trying to make the CBN accessible to non-profits, co-operatives and solo social entrepreneurs, sought the input from many of us in the social enterprise community. This portal is a concrete step to acknowledge social enterprise and to ensure that programs run by the government (and others) are available for those of us wishing to use business to bring about social change.
Social Delta is of course willing to help you and your social enterprise understand, access and apply any of the resources made available on the CBN site.
Just contact us to see how we can help.
