Josh - what Type is Innoweave?
Kevin McKay
34:23
Building on Elizabeth's question can a registered CRA# charity own a for-profit SE?
Elizabeth Thorn
36:18
yes but having consulted a lawyer there are significant issues to be aware of--e.g. the size of the social enterprise versus charities revenues and the relationship as I understand it to the charities mission- I thought it must be related?????
Kevin McKay
38:13
Josh - what Type is Innoweave?
Kevin McKay
39:50
so are you a registered business - separate from MCC
Kevin McKay
41:22
thank you
Elizabeth Thorn

Suggest that as the social enterprise grows the mix of funding sources will evolve--start with incubation grants with minimal revenues from sales, then try an accelerator grant to move forward to self-sufficiency to profit making
Elizabeth Thorn
48:45
Aim for social and financial viability
Peter Miller
51:20
that is called r&d=rob and duplicate
Peter Miller
52:08
start with a 1 page business plan-see bplans.com
Peter Miller
58:40
define problem not symptoms who and how many impacted, assess solutions, validate that someone will buy enough to be viable
Glenn Smith
