Are you an entrepreneur, investor or startup community stakeholder? Come have some drinks and meet current and aspiring social entrepreneurs* at Social Startup Meetups  of 2016 on the last Wednesday of each month at Mahtay Cafe.

To kick off the event, we’ll hear from Jillian Berswick, the Sustainable Business Development and Marketing Manager at Loop Recycled Products. Jillian is passionate about sustainable business and circular economies, and is always working to develop new community, business, and social-good driven initiatives. Working with Loop Recycled Products on the front lines of a nationally visible brand has allowed Jillian to gain valuable insight from government and non-governmental organizations, business leaders and community influencers.

Loop Recycled Paint  is a product developed by Photech Environmental Solutions, located in Niagara Falls, ON. Loop recycled products specializes in the reintroduction of otherwise waste materials back into the marketplace as viable products, including the processing of waste paints and coatings into the national retail brand Loop Recycled Paint, sold in Wal-Mart stores across Canada, Walmart USA and Walmart.com. Alternative brands are sold in Giant Tiger, Lowes.ca, Amazon.ca and Amazon.com.

This event is part of Social Startups 2016, an initiative to bring together social entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial supports in Niagara to share skills and resources for the successful development of social enterprise ventures. Our vision is to build a social entrepreneurial ecosystem in Niagara that will create economic value and social impact. A social entrepreneur is someone who finds creative and sustainable solutions to the world’s problems.
