Empact Pledge Receptions Overview

Empact (, in partnership with Opportunity International (, is organizing four regional receptions for top entrepreneurs from across the country who are interested in taking part in the Empact Pledge ( 

The Empact Pledge is an effort to invite the most successful entrepreneurs from around the country to pledge to give back their time and money to the field of entrepreneurship.

The pledge is a moral commitment that will address the challenges of the current economy and jobs crisis through the development and education of new entrepreneurs. Additionally, through our partnership with Opportunity International we have the ability to impact small scale entrepreneurs and help them overcome poverty through the microfinance services they offer.


Pledge Receptions will be held in four different cities on the following dates:

  • San Francisco, California on May 7, 2012 (evening)
  • Washington, DC on May 23, 2012 (afternoon)
  • New York, New York on June 9, 2012 (evening)
  • Chicago, Illinois in July 2012 (evening)


This is a free event for you to attend as a way to commend you for your success as an entrepreneur, and your commitment to the development and education of new entrepreneurs. 

There will be great food, networking, and amazing speakers.
