"The world of tomorrow is being shaped by passionate amateurs - not with the way things have always been done."

The ONE SE Partnership

2017 - 2018


In 2017, the Ministry of Economic Development and Growth granted money to four organizations in Ontario to lead projects devoted to Social Enterprise. Pillar Nonprofit Network is the lead for Social Enterprise Southwest.

The province has stretched our comfort zone, moved us off our islands, and led us to great partnerships in our region. We are so incredibly excited to bring Pillar Nonprofit's social enterprise expertise to Windsor, Huron County, and Niagara Region with our amazing ONE partners: University of Windsor EPICentre, Huron Small Business Enterprise Centre, and Innovate Niagara.

Pillar Nonprofit Network

We want to plant the seeds of socialpreneur and organizational success right in our communities and help our communities flourish! We're working with existing entrepreneurial support systems, like the Ontario Network of Entrepreneurs -- Small Business Enterprise Centres, Regional Innovation Centres, and Campus Link Accelerators -- to make sure that social enterprises have the business supports they need and want.

We're excited! And we can't wait to work with you.
