Why: The field of social entrepreneurship, impact investment, and social venture capital is emergent, quickly changing, and global. Ultimately, it’s about people (who work as businesses, government, NGOs, foundations, or citizens) solving social problems in new and measurably better ways: collaboratively, using proven innovation methodologies, while exploring new financing and organizational models.

Think: Attend typical unconference-style learning sessions or sit in on office hours with key organizations & individuals. Do: Participate in hands-on, experiential activities during the event to develop new skills in finance, fundraising, organizational development, entrepreneurship, getting involved, philanthropy, crowdfunding, and more.

Share: Capture video and photos, participate through live streaming or via Skype/real-time chat w/ global partners, connect through social media.
