Social Enterprise Alliance, San Francisco Bay Area Chapter

We are a nonprofit alliance of leaders in the San Francisco Bay Area using business to benefit communities.

Entrepreneurs, investors, and leaders across sectors and generations are realizing that financial and social returns are not mutually exclusive. Organizations, products, and services can use the marketplace for delivering positive impacts to our communities. New social movements, media, and technology are causing and enabling tremendous shifts in legislation, the workplace, and the marketplace: an awakening to the opportunity of an impact-driven economy.

SEA/SFBay facilitates participatory events for collective impact, with the vision of a San Francisco Bay Area where everyone has the opportunity to invest, start, partner, work, and purchase from businesses that benefit communities. Our mission is to take a purposeful, inclusive, and innovative approach for convening leaders from all sectors, ages, and stages to benefit social enterprises, the communities they impact, and the social enterprise movement at large.

Join us!

We are an official chapter of Social Enterprise Alliance, the largest network of social enterprises in North America with a 15‐year history of field leadership, a national network of over 1,000 members, and a local footprint of 13 chapters in 11 states. Members include top practitioners, leading thinkers, investors, public policy leaders and a wide range of service providers.
