Swimming With the Sharks: How CAAs Can Move Their Social Enterprises Forward

Or does your CAA operate a social enterprise, but is looking for help with business development? Selected CAAs will deliver an in-person, 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.
