EWB Canada invests in ventures that will drive innovations to change the systems that cause and perpetuate poverty. We spark and accelerate their growth, build their capacity and ensure their long-term independence and sustainability. Our ventures receive financial support, volunteers and professional mentorship that help guide their actions toward greater, sector-wide impact.
Our ventures’ impact is local, but their innovations have the potential to challenge global systems. Some bring affordable financing to rural entrepreneurs. Some improve delivery of vital government services. Some mobilize Canadians to change the way companies think about social responsibility. All challenge the status quo and provide radical alternatives to unjust systems.
