We are grateful

We are grateful to partner with philanthropists and government, social sector and business leaders to support young entrepreneurs as they launch and scale social enterprises, initiatives that apply business solutions to our world’s greatest social challenges.

We thank RBC, our founding programming partner of WE Are Social Entrepreneurs; a joint program between RBC Future Launch and WE, and the infrastructure sponsor of the WE Incubation Hub. The success of these programs, which support emerging entrepreneurs, is the catalyst/inspiration for the establishment of the WE Social Entrepreneurship Centre and all of the evolved multi-tier program offerings to come.

Thor Richardson, Entrepreneur and WE Champion

Special thanks to Thor Richardson for his landmark gift to the WE SEC’s physical infrastructure. As an example of the program’s vision, the young entrepreneur made the commitment prior to his 30th birthday.
