SOCAP17 is right around the corner. We’re hard at work developing outstanding programming and events for the 10th anniversary year and wanted to share a preview of some of the community-driven conversations that will be taking place at SOCAP17. We hope you will join us and be a part of the conversation, October 10-13, 2017, on the waterfront in San Francisco.
Sneak Peek: Impact Leaders as Guest Curators at SOCAP
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Social Capital Markets conference, we reached out to leaders in the impact space and asked them to join us as Guest Curators. Each guest curated “Spotlight” is focused on a core inquiry, and utilizes multiple sessions and various formats to explore that inquiry at SOCAP.
Several notable members of our community have taken on this challenge. Click the links below to read a preview of the concepts they will bring to the stage at SOCAP17.
