Event Description

It takes a village to raise a social venture - and this is the town hall party!

Tickets are by donation - Pay What You Can and support the movement by building our bursary fund!

On March 6th, we invite you to celebrate with us as we showcase the incredible hard work of Groundswell's latest cohort of big-hearted budding entrepreneurs.  This creative crew will reveal their social ventures, stories and projects to you from the stage and invite you to be some of their first fans from their marketplace tables. There will be something for everybody....

We've got writers, art parties, builders, multicultural and raw food eats, a space in the future for gender queer folk,  skill sharing communities and (viewer discretion is advised) custom sex toys.  See a full list of the new ventures and who's in the pop-up alumni marketplace below.

What's happening at Performance Works on March 6th:

5:30: Doors open - don't forget to get your name on the list and register!

5:30 - 9:00: Marketplace
Check out demo booths for the new ventures, meet the entrepreneurs and see what a few of our past program participants are up to with a special mini alumni market!

6:00 - 7:30: Presentations
Each member of this year's Social Venture cohort will share their story and social business idea to the world for the first time!

9:00: Marketplace and bar sales close.

There will be a cash bar, food for sale, and complimentary snacks.
