C3 - The New Hybrid Business Model in BC

Posted on 4 November, 2013 at 16:10

What's a C3 ???

  •  A Community Contribution Company 
  •  a first in Canada
  • a hybrid business model

What's a C3 for ???

  • to encourage philanthropic investors to invest in social enterprise
  • to put a strict cap on the dividends that can be paid out to shareholders ( the maximum is 40% of profit)
  • to bridge the gap between for-profit businesses and non-profit organizations

This is an exciting new oppurtunity for entrepeneurs with a passion for social enterprise and BC put it together first in Canada !!!

"As a hotbed of social enterprise activity, BC is an apt province to roll out such an option"  Stacey Corriveau, Executive Director of BC Centre for Social Enterprise.
