Hacking Social Impact Unconference - Portland




This November, the Social Venture Society will host the second Hacking Social Impact unconference, a collaborative and educational event addressing impact investment and social entrepreneurship. As in 2012, the two-day event will feature hands-on workshop, interactive discussion sessions, and networking.

Participants will not only have the opportunity to bring their ideas to the table, but to engage in direct, powerful and informal discussions on the topics which will shape the socially-driven entrepreneur, investor and philanthropist.

An unconference is a participant-driven meeting, popular among technology and social media-influenced communities, in which information sharing is collaborative and dynamic.

Last year, we had a tremendous experience hosting impact community members and learning with and from folks from Ecotrust, Immix Law, Springboard Innovation, B Labs, Grameen Foundation, Mercy Corps Micro Mentor, p:ear, PSU Impact Entrepreneurs, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Social Venture Partners, Startup America, and many more.

Schedule & Details:

On Monday night (5:30 - 8:00), we will have a kickoff reception at MercyCoprs.

Tuesday will be a full day of sessions, workshops, connecting, discussing, and hacking, held at the Eliot Center from 9:00-5:00.
