  • Facilitated and open networking opportunities
  • Interactive discussions and proactive, action-oriented dialogue among peers
  • Opportunities to meet select early-stage social entrepreneurs raising capital, and begin the due diligence process onsite with other impact investors
  • 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 business leaders and investors from a wide range of perspectives
