CSI Agents of Change win big at the StartUp Canada awards

CSI’s Agents of Change program is our flagship accelerator and it shows through the success of our participants, two of whom took home awards at last week’s StartUp Canada awards!

Maayan Ziv at Access Now, an active AoC from the Community Health cohort took home the Resilient Entrepreneur Award, and Nadia Hamilton, the founder of Magnusmode took home Woman Entrepreneur of the Year. “Congratulations to the 2016 Startup Canada Awards winners, each of whom have been recognized by their peers as strong role models…. Each recipient is driving impact in Canada and globally, and represent the greatness and diversity of Canada’s entrepreneur community.”

We have some big news! The world is changing and so must CSI! We told our members earlier today and now we want to tell you. CSI has made the decision to put 720 Bathurst up for sale and consolidate our operations into CSI Spadina.

One of the keys to CSI's magic is our Community Animator Program (CAP) and, specifically, the Community Animators themselves! Through this program, we've worked with more than 1,000 exceptional individuals who have each brought a little something different, and a little sparkle, to our spaces. And we're so glad to have had them in our community, because we've learned that each and every one of them has some exceptional talents, skills, and experiences to offer the world!
