About SEE

ONE Social Enterprise Partnership, Northern Region, known as Social Enterprise and Entrepreneurship (SEE), includes the NORDIK Institute, the Northwest Regional Innovation Centre in Thunder Bay, the Business Enterprise Centre in Timmins,YouLaunch in Sault Ste. Marie and the PARO Centre for Women’s Enterprise in Thunder Bay. Its goal is to help social enterprises develop the solid business fundamentals they need to start and grow; to develop regionally-tailored approaches to deliver training, mentorship, and other services to social enterprises; and to build the capacity of the Ontario Network of Entrepreneurs (ONE) members in their region to serve social enterprises and entrepreneurs. It is funded in part by the Ministry of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade.

Social Enterprise and Entrepreneurship (SEE) Northern Region Partnership (formerly Social Enterprise Evolution, focused on youth social entrepreneurship) has expanded to serve all ages of social innovators, creating a network between and among entrepreneurs, service providers and the broader community.

SEE seeks to address Northern Ontario’s social and economic challenges by encouraging a movement of social enterprise and entrepreneurship that stresses community resilience, innovation, support and mobilization.

SEE aims to strengthen, support, grow and scale Social Enterprises (SEs) across Northern Ontario through:

 

The provision of culturally appropriate services such as peer mentoring, training and networking;

 

The development of resources to support social enterprises and entrepreneurs, and service providers;

 

And assisting social enterprises in overcoming challenges such as access to markets, capital and seed funding.
