Incubate a movement: Social Acquisition Institute

The Legacy Leadership Lab is proud to announce the release of its Final Report and its transition to the Social Acquisition Institute INCUBATION.

From Fall 2019 to Spring 2021, L3 ran a popular and very engaged pilot project assembling leaders in business succession and social enterprise conversion as an Investment Readiness Program partner with the Government of Canada. Based on its Spring 2021 continuity assessment and report (.pdf), L3 proposed five key next steps for the community, which included a proposal that the Waterloo Institute for Social Innovation and Resilience launch and oversee the incubation of a backbone organization to further support community, capacity, and governance development for social acquisition stakeholders, researchers, and practitioners.

WISIR is looking to incubate and support the launch of a “Social Acquisition Institute” by mutually supporting the ongoing partnership initiatives that were assembled and prototyped throughout the L3 pilot. Subscribe to our alerts, follow us on Twitter and Facebook, and join the LinkedIn Group to make sure you keep up with the initiatives’ developments and opportunities.

Who should join the incubation work? Catch the video – there are a lot of implicated groups!
