Expert service providers for the co-operative sector

Expert service providers for the co-operative sector

Expert service providers are organizations that provide resources, training, mentoring, and other learning opportunities to social-purpose organizations to move towards investment readiness.

The EDSC-funded expert service providers are the following:

  1. McConnell Foundation (Innoweave)
  2. LIFT Philanthropy Partners
  3. Social Enterprise Ecosystem (S4ES)
  4. MaRS SVX
  5. Raven Indigenous Capital Partners
  6. Sauder (UBC) Social Innovation Academy (SIA)

Social-purpose organizations are not obligated to approach IRP-funded expert service providers; rather, they have the choice to seek support from service providers that meet their needs.

You can consult the list of service providers that CMC has developed for the co-operative sector or that of Innoweave so that you can identify different options to meet your needs.
