SOCAP is filled with thought leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, and new entrants to the fields of social enterprise and impact investing, and is where many impact organizations share leading news and breakthrough ideas. Each year in San Francisco it is our privilege to convene the most compelling voices and stories from the impact economy, which produces a treasure trove of material for any journalist or blogger interested in the growing marketplace at the intersection of money and meaning.

SOCAP16 is three weeks behind us, and we’re still tallying the results. At the time of this post, SOCAP16 has been mentioned in over 200 articles. And while we don’t have the space to list all of the coverage received, we hope you’ll enjoy some of these press highlights from SOCAP16.
