A SOCAP Guest Post by Joel Solomon My first book, The Clean Money Revolution, is coming out in May. So, you may be asking, what is clean money? Clean Money…
An ongoing event series, SOCAP 365 features world-class speakers and opportunities to connect at the intersection of money and meaning. Through thought leadership panel discussions, inclusive dialogues, and community-building events, SOCAP 365 serves the rapidly growing network of impact investors, social entrepreneurs, conscious corporations, philanthropists, government agencies, and innovators in every sector. Whether you’re a long-time SOCAP attendee or relatively new and curious about the field, SOCAP 365 is a chance to plug-in locally with like-minded peers committed to accelerating the flow of capital toward global good.
SOCAP 365 Is Committed To:
CONVENING ACROSS SECTORS
From the original thought leaders of impact investing to new stakeholders from a variety of fields, we believe a diversity of voices is vital to meaningful, actionable dialogue. Just as the conference itself is thought of as a “big tent,” SOCAP 365 will also bring together multiple perspectives to foster cross-disciplinary and impactful conversations.
EXPANDING THE COMMUNITY
SOCAP 365 is both an entry point for curious first-timers and a convening ground for growing networks of local peers to cultivate new and strengthen existing relationships in the field. Ticket price, travel capabilities, or other commitments are hurdles to attending the annual SOCAP conference that we hope to overcome with more local and accessible programming.
ADVANCING THE CONVERSATION
We have to talk about what’s working, where the gaps are, and what’s next to actively accelerate the flow of capital toward global social and environmental challenges. SOCAP 365 provides a platform for participants to share best practices and identify new partners and collaborators throughout the year to accelerate our collective impact.
