July. Calgary. Coolness.

Sharing some amazing sparks of action, we see through our collaborative work in community and a few opportunities this July!

Emerge Co-Work Hub

We are thrilled to announce emergeHub opens in July, yet another exciting initiative of International Ave BRZ.

The co-work hub was unveiled for an early viewing in June and acted as site host for Business Link’s monthly event BizConnections YYC. Very soon the innovative and funky space will serve as the go-to-spot for up to 30 area entrepreneurs through a supportive and collaborative community rooted in a physical space offering work desks and meeting rooms. Thrive in collaboration with the Alberta Community Cooperative Association and Momentum have partnered with International Ave BRZ to be onsite and provide business supports.

Social Enterprise 201 in the Hills

Community champions from Northern Hills are quite simply blowing our minds with their incredible enthusiasm for creating social and economic impacts. Over the last year we’ve had the opportunity to introduce the community to social enterprise – what it is and how it can be used to make a difference in a neighborhood.

On Tuesday, July 4 we’re following up with Social Enterprise 201 – The (Social) Business Model Canvas. Thrive has partnered with BusinessLink, Vivo and the Northern Hills Community Association to deliver the event.

If you are living in, working in or just loving the communities of Northern Hills, Country Hills, Country Hills Village, Coventry Hills, Harvest Hills and Panorama Hills then please join us! The event is free and you can register here.
