Sage, the leader in accounting, financial, HR, and payroll technology for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), has announced the launch of its Canadian Grow Program incubator to empower non-profit leaders in British Columbia.
The incubator is hosted by Sage Foundation, bringing together non-profit CEO’s and Executive Directors for a series of in-person business development sessions across the year. Each non-profit is strategically matched with one or more Sage leaders based on their business objectives for the program.
Each ‘match’ carefully selects a strategic project that would help the nonprofit amplify their impact in the community. By the end of program, non-profits will have the tools to help execute their strategic projects or will have already started.
In 2022, Sage Foundation launched the incubator as a pilot program in Canada, proving to be a success to all four non-profits that participated.
The 2023 cohort consists of five local non-profits in Richmond:
- Tri-Cities Friends of Refugees
- Richmond Food Bank
- Big Brother Big Sisters of Langley
- Vancouver Food Runners
- Earthwise Society
“The non-profit community contributes to $6.7 billion to B.C.’s economy, which is why it’s so valuable for us to collaborate with charities in the community we reside in, Richmond. Non-profits are critical to our economic recovery to maintain community resilience, provide essential services and promote educational opportunities through art, culture and sports,” said Mark Hickman, Managing Director of Sage in Canada.
“I’m proud to see Sage Foundation take this program to new heights this year and connect with even more grassroots changemakers.”
