YPDN Presents: Bill Young on January 27th

  • The Chase 10 Temperance St Toronto, ON, M5H 1Y4 Canada (map)

Join us for an exclusive event with Bill Young, founder of Social Capital Partners (SCP).

SCP an innovative, non-profit, social finance company started in 2001. SCP was founded on Bill’s beliefs that (a) there is nothing more important than the dignity of a job for all of us and (b) that Canada doesn’t have particularly effective systems in place to find meaningful employment opportunities for those at a disadvantage.

Throughout its history, SCP has facilitated thousands of jobs for people who face employment barriers by providing start-up and growth capital and operational help to social enterprises and by providing financing to numerous privately owned franchise locations tied to their commitment to hire a significant number of community hires. SCP is currently working with a number of partners to try and solve these issues at a systems level. 

Before founding SCP, Bill worked for approximately 20 years in the private sector primarily as CEO of Hamilton Computers which was sold to GE Capital, and Optel Communications Corp. He began his career as a Chartered Accountant and holds an Honours BA from the University of Toronto and an MBA from Harvard. He sits on numerous boards and advisory boards involved in social finance and social innovation and is a member of the Order of Canada.
