During Global Entrepreneurship Week 2019, Paula Haapanen, Northern Operations Manager for the Conseil de la coopération de l'Ontario (Cooperation Council of Ontario) will present on social entrepreneurship, and its place in the global and local economy.

Lunch and Learn : The Social Economy in Global Entrepreneurship
 
Recently, Sarah Shearman reported in the National Post (22 Oct) that despite the growth in acceptance of social entrepreneurship internationally, misconceptions about the concept abound.  According to the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s second global poll on the best countries for social entrepreneurs, more than half of the 900 social enterprise experts who responded said "that the public did not understand what they did" (https://nationalpost.com/pmn/news-pmn/politics-news-pmn/whats-a-social-entrepreneur-and-other-frequently-asked-questions).
