About this event

The Social Innovator Showcase is the Social Innovation Forum’s signature event, an exciting and vibrant evening when Boston’s innovation and social change communities gather to hear effective and innovative nonprofits pitch their solutions to our region’s toughest social issues.

Modeled after a venture capital forum, the evening begins with food and networking leading up to the main program: eight high-energy pitches from nonprofit “Social Innovators” to an in-person audience of 200 philanthropists, business executives, and foundation leaders.

To learn more about sponsorship or to submit an ad for the Social Innovator Showcase program booklet, please contact Pavel Payano at ppayano@socialinnovationforum.org.
