Who We Are

senco inspires, connects and equips those looking to engage in social enterprise to face cultural, environmental and social challenges in our region.

We work with social enterprises, budding social entrepreneurs, organizations, intermediaries and community leaders to support innovative economic approaches to strengthen our communities. Our goal is to be the bridge to new knowledge, resources and supporting business practices to achieve financial growth and sustainability through social enterprise.

senco is an initiative of Georgian College’s Centre for Changemaking and Social Innovation (CCSI).

Our region of Central Ontario aligns with the “footprint” of Georgian’s seven campuses in the counties of Simcoe, Muskoka, Grey and Dufferin.
