The 2013 Social Enterprise World Forum brought together 1,200 individuals from more than 30 countries and speakers from more than 20 countries. The event was attended by social entrepreneurs from diverse backgrounds – traditional non-profits, for-profit businesses, philanthropists, intrapreneurs, the public sector, support agencies, funders and investors, consultants, indigenous groups, and students –all to share a dedication to resolving the world’s most complex and confounding social challenges.
Next Digital was there to connect with other socially minded businesses and charities, and share information about our social enterprise: The CommunityCloud. The CommunityCloud offers affordable network solutions to charities with support from our technology partners: Microsoft, Lenovo, Symantec, Fortinet and Dell.
At the Social Enterprise World Forum, Next Digital built some incredible partnerships with community organizations, and shared ideas on technology for social change. We are proud to be part of the social enterprise movement and learned so much about innovative projects happening in Alberta and around the world.
