For the last nine months, VANCOUVER+acumen has been hosting a monthly series of salons inspired by the values and principles of Acumen Fund. This month in addition to the monthly salon on Trust, VANCOUVER+acumen will be teaming up with two student organizations (Social Enterprise Club and Commerce Community Program) at the Univeristy of British Columbia to host the first Student Salon, run by students, on March 29th!
The theme for the first Student Salon will be: “A Life of Purpose”. It will host 20-25 students and is open to students from all majors and years. It’s about the exchange of new people and new ideas.
Are you a student at UBC? If you are interested in attending, please check out the Facebook event here. We hope that the discussion will spur your imagination and challenge you to think about poverty, business and the relationship that exists between them in new ways. The Salon will also be a great place to meet other students who are interested in social enterprise.
