BID Inc. is a community based movement of social innovation and entrepreneurship
Officially established in May 2012 and launched in May 2013, BID stands for Build, Invest & Develop, three action words that describe our passion for doing work for the greater good. We believe in communities and the people they serve.
We are Prince Edward Island’s first social enterprise for entrepreneurship.
About Social Enterprise
A social enterprise is an organization that applies commercial strategies to maximize improvements in human and environmental well being, rather than maximizing profits for external shareholders. This is this business model BID Inc. strives to implement. We’ve developed a small resource on the topic of social enterprise.
Are there any social enterprises on PEI?
Prince Edward Island has always had social enterprises. Island communities working together, helping friends and families has been a way of life since the first settlers. However, in the past, this help did not always go beyond their own connections.
We want to change that. As the first social enterprise for entrepreneurs on PEI, BID Inc. is committed to bringing Island communities together so that we can improve our social and economic outcomes together.
