Community Futures Sunshine Coast (CFSC) inspires and advances an ecosystem of social entrepreneurship, social enterprise and impact investing on the Sunshine Coast. They provide business advisory services, loans, equity investment, and learning opportunities to local entrepreneurs aiming to start, grow, buy or sell a business. Their newest ventures are a critical part of our overall suite of services, and designed to activate new models of leadership and work in community and business. The CFSC team prides itself in forging the path toward sustainable rural community development models and is pleased to share their passion for this work with the Bowen Island Economic Development Committee. Everyone is welcome to join the conversation with Zarah Gale, who will talk about the CFSC actives and mission, and highlight some interesting strategic partnerships and projects that are grounded in social finance and impact investing models that are working in the region.
