Join us for the 11th annual Global Social Venture Conference April 22-23!
The Global Social Venture Conference gives you the opportunity to engage with the competition's finalists and network with experts from across the social impact community. This is a fantastic chance to learn about the new and innovative business solutions to global problems, talk with the leaders of social impact organizations, and learn how to launch your own double- or triple-bottom-line business!
The conference includes presentations from the Global Social Venture Competition's global finalists, exciting keynote speakers, and in-depth panel sessions. The panels cover topics such as innovative business models, funding, legal issues, global health, education, and the environment -- all with a focus on how to start and sustain a business or non-profit with social impact.
