Be part of the change!
We recognize that the world is facing what seems like overwhelming challenges. News about the ramifications of climate change seems more and more dire every day. Societal issues such as the wealth gap seems to be widening at a faster pace. But even if finding ways to meet these challenges seem daunting, they are not impossible.
Entrepreneurs and innovators are working on solutions to what we are facing globally, and we have to support them in every way that we can. At Sustainable Impact Foundation, we are building ecosystems and vehicles for systemic collaboration, not just so that they have access to the tools and resources they need, but so that the people who have the guts to be part of the change, are able to thrive.
We are working with a range of Canadian and international partners who are working to foster an ecosystem for innovators to thrive. Talk to us to find out how we can work together.
What influences us as an ESO?
Challenge policy makers and ESOs to adapt innovation policy to support and stimulate entrepreneurs and innovators so that they can meet societal and environmental challenges.
Aside from purely ethical reasons, based on equality and empowerment of women, Genderlens Investing is critical in its role in solving the challenges that we are facing.
The slower pace of technological adoption does not protect an economy. We need to resist complacency, and challenge industries that are too comfortable.
Innovation policies need to be diverse by design. Innovation thrives when unique perspectives comes together to tackle a problem.
A Focus on Inclusivity
We believe that it is a necessity to be inclusive in program design. Innovation with communities is more effective than innovation for communities.
Future of Work
The pandemic has arguably transformed the way we envisage the future of work. We need understand how to support this future of work.
We acknowledge the land we live and work on is the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit. Because we work with individuals and organizations worldwide, we’d like to extend this acknowledgement to all those who have historically stewarded and nurtured the lands we live, work, and play on today.
