UCeed Social Impact Fund

The UCeed program is made possible by the generosity of United Way of Calgary and Area?and the University of Calgary.

The UCeed Social Impact Fund accelerates socially-purposed organizations using enterprising models to reach mission-critical milestones. These may include their next round of financing or attraction of management and resources to build value in the companies, and community.

As an early-stage investment fund, UCeed uses outcome-based investment with funding to accomplish defined milestones.
