Join the Social Venture Collaborative for the 2nd annual New Economy Summit.

The event will convene social entrepreneurs, social change practitioners, educational institutions, students, the business community, and others who share the goal of creating a just, equitable, and sustainable world.

Participants will engage in various interactive activities designed to strengthen a regional ecosystem and support transformation related to social enterprise, social business, cooperatives, and enterprise-oriented nonprofit organizations.
