Toronto hosts think tank on social entrepreneurship

Last week, UJA?Federation of Greater Toronto hosted a two-day international think tank on Jewish innovation and social entrepreneurship.

About 30 people – social entrepreneurs (people who use a business model to address societal issues), researchers in the field, and funders – took part in the event. Approximately a third were Canadian, and there was one participant each from Sweden and from England.

… The recent Toronto meeting was co-sponsored by its lead organizer Jumpstart – The Network for Jewish Innovation, which is based in California; the New York-based Lippman Kanfer Institute, a think tank for innovation in Jewish learning that is part of JESNA (Jewish Education Service of North America); Jewish Federations of North America; and Toronto’s federation; with support from the Andrea &?Charles Bronfman Philanthropies.
