Event description


Hosted at the Gem Theater in Kansas City, from 1 - 5 pm on March 2, 2017, Conquer For Good features talks by leaders working to build a thriving ecosystem of social enterprise and purpose-driven companies in Kansas City.

Speakers are the forces of positive change in our society, launching new models of collaboration, capital investment, and creative business design in order to help humanity thrive. Their endeavors show us how entrepreneurial innovation, enterprise-level scale, and an egalitarian sense of purpose can merge for-profit, non-profit, educational, and governmental approaches into a new model for solving today’s most critical problems.
