Enterprising Non-profits and Starworks
Starting a business with an ulterior motive of helping the community can be a challenge. Enterprising Non-Profits aims to make it easier by helping social enterprises develop business skills, including business planning.
Starworks is one of the organizations they helped. Creating employment for people with developmental disabilities, Starworks provides customized light manufacturing and kit assembly work – anything from assembling road signs, parts kits or just stuffing envelopes. Their clients include BC Hydro, Finning Canada and more.
This innovative project with BC Developmental Disabilities Association provides a useful service while creating work for people who otherwise might not have a job.
