Open Eyes and Social Enterprise

Originally published in Linkedin by Colleen Gentemann


Recently, I met David and Hannah Cree.  A Calgary power couple if I have ever met one. They are on a journey to make waves in the City of Calgary through their forward thinking entrepreneurial spirit. CMNGD (Common Good), is a social enterprise building a sustainable, scaleable business that employs marginalized people, giving them a living wage and a hope for the future.

Together we created a video that explains their mission.  Watch the video!

David and Hannah recently won at the ATB BoostR stage event, where they pitched CMNGD to a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style  panel of judges.  There was stiff competition amongst all the worthy entrepreneurs but CMNGD was the clear favourite, generating the most intrigue in the crowd, and melting the hearts of the judges.

There are only 7 days left for them to reach their fundraising goals.  Your contribution will have a massive ripple effect.  Make a difference, invest in change.
