Event description


For 30 years, high-impact business leaders, social entrepreneurs, and impact investors have convened at SVN conferences to have authentic conversations with values-aligned peers. SVN's unique conference experience creates an environment where the real challenges, insights, and best practices of leading a mission-driven business can be discussed. SVN conferences facilitate peer-to-peer relationship building, and create a community where attendees can enhance their leadership, improve their businesses, and expand their impact.

At Business for the Greatest Good: SVN's 30th Anniversary Conference & Gala, expect:

  • Facilitated and open networking opportunities
  • Interactive discussions and proactive, action-oriented dialogue among peers
  • Sessions that offer key takeaways and practical advice on best practices for social enterprises and impact investors
  • Inspiring and experiential presentations from innovative leaders on the future of mission-driven business
  • A deep cultural foundation that welcomes values-aligned entrepreneurs and investors from a wide range of perspectives

Attend SVN's conference to make connections, share ideas, and find the inspiration you need to build a more just, humane, and sustainable world. Detailed program and speaker information can be found online at conference.svn.org. Register today to reserve your spot.

Note: The conference will run through Saturday night (Gala night), December 9, so we recommend reserving a hotel room for three total nights, December 7-9, departing on the 10th.
