Through a popular Letters of Intent (LOI) process, the Social Enterprise Dragons event selects case study presentations from three local social enterprises each year. The groups then share their story with an expert panel and an audience of their peers in an evening that begins with a cocktail reception and market place before moving onto the presentations. Each group receives feedback from the panel, with the goal of creating learning through tangible experiences, for both the audience and the presenters.

The event delivers three awards;

   1. Business Process Improvement Services with JDQ to help one group devise strategies to address their key challenge or opportunity.
   2. A $15,000 grant through VCF to help the winning group implement the solutions developed through their work.
   3. A technical assistance award of $2,500, sponsored through enp, to help one group secure professional support to address their identified issue.

The Social Enterprise Dragons event is delivered collaboratively through 4 host organizations; Vancity Community Foundation, JDQ Systems inc., BC Social Venture Partners and Enterprising Non-Profits. In addition, there are many others who participate in the event including Renewal Partners, sponsor organizations (Adnet inc. and Vancity Credit Union), task committee members from the social enterprise community and an event audience of 200 people.
