In tandem with Global Entrepreneurship Week and International Social Enterprise Day, Social Impact Week is a Minnesota-focused week long celebration and campaign with a global connection.
Join Impact Hub MSP and Social Enterprise MSP, as we partner to launch a MN wide digital campaign called "Why Social?" to drive awareness and visibility of local social enterprises, provide community-building opportunities for social business leaders to tell impact story, and connect like-minded citizens looking to shop their values and support a purpose-driven economy.
What does being a social enterprise mean?
How is it different than a traditional business or non-profit?
Wait, are you a B Corp? What is a public benefit corporation?
As a social business leader, sometimes it can be challenging to communicate your social-mission with your customers, audience, and even your own staff.
Our campaign is here to help you tell the world what being "social" means to you and why it's important in building a new, just economy. We're making it easy for you with prompts and digital assets to share with your staff and your customers. Plus you'll join other social enterprises from across the state (and the globe) as we celebrate the power of social business in action!
Any company with a social mission - including B Corps and Public Benefit Corporations, as well as non-profits with earned income are welcome. Learn more about social enterprise here.
Are you an individual ready to promote and champion shopping your values? Share the stories behind local social enterprises and "buy the change" you want to see!
Everyone is needed to support and amplify stories of mission-driven companies. Use your voice and network to make a difference!
All participants will receive a marketing pack, toolkit, badge, and digital assets designed to make it easier for you to share content about your social mission. This pack will contain everything you need to participate in the campaign, including sample social media content, web and newsletter copy.
