Swimming With the Sharks: How CAAs Can Move Their Social Enterprises Forward
CAPLAW is calling for CAAs to participate in a Shark Tank-style workshop. Do you have a great business idea ? Or does your CAA already operate a social enterprise up and running, but is looking for help with business development? Selected CAAs will have the opportunity to deliver an in-person, 3-5 minute pitch of their business ideas to a panel of social enterprise gurus (aka “Sharks”) and receive valuable feedback and a chance to win the "Most Valuable Business Plan" award. Learn more.
