The objective of this summit is to raise the profile of social entrepreneurship in New Jersey by bringing leaders of the social sector and entrepreneurs who address social and environmental problems in their businesses together to learn from and support one another. 

We are particularly interested in bringing together leaders who are tackling these social and environmental issues in New Jersey and encouraging these social entrepreneurs or would-be social entrepreneurs to use innovative, sustainable, and profitable business ventures and social impact organizations as their vehicle for long-term change.

The program will feature a series of interactive speaker discussions and workshops that

  • Inform the social sector and business community of the benefits and need for entrepreneurial approaches to addressing social and environmental issues. 
  • Equip participants with tools to take steps toward building a social enterprise or social business 
  • Facilitate networking with potential investors, experienced business leaders and individual entrepreneurs who are interested engaging in social venture initiatives in NJ 
  • Announce the New Jersey Social Innovation Institute, an initiative to support new social ventures in the state of New Jersey.
