Calling all Social Entrepreneurs

Do you dream of having a career that makes a positive impact on the world? You just might be a social entrepreneur!

Futurpreneur Canada and Trico Charitable Foundation are teaming up to help Canadians aged 18-39 become social entrepreneurs. Whether you want to start a non-profit organization, or a social enterprise selling goods or services that address social or environmental issues, we can help you get started.

We support social entrepreneurs through our Start-Up Program, which provides the financing, mentoring and business resources young people need to be successful. Our support will help you overcome the unique challenges that come with being a social entrepreneur. If you’re launching a social enterprise, we’ll help you build confidence and develop your business acumen. For non-profit founders, our financing is much more flexible than the typical grant, allowing you to decide what works best for your organization.

Our Start-Up Program provides the following benefits to social entrepreneurs:

  • Up to $45,000 in financing*
  • Up to two years of business mentoring to help build confidence and skills
  • Online resources and in-person business services
  • Sector-specific coaching through Enterprising Non-Profits (enp)**

* Non-profits are eligible for $15,000 in financing
** Up to 8 social enterprises and non-profits organizations may receive coaching support from enp.

For more information please review all eligibility requirements and financing details. Contact us at to find out how Futurpreneur Canada can help you launch and grow your non-profit or social enterprise.
