Thank you for another amazing year!

SOCAP is the world’s leading conference activating the capital markets to drive positive social and environmental impact – convening the marketplace at the intersection of money and meaning. The conference brings together impact investors, social entrepreneurs, philanthropists, business leaders and other innovators from across the world in a unique cross-sector approach to catalyze collaboration for change. Kicking off a new decade of impact at SOCAP18, we have gathered over 20,000 people in the past ten years to accelerate the flow of capital for good.

This industry uses the power of finance and business to make the world a better place, and SOCAP, which is the biggest convener of all the main stakeholders in the industry, is a big part of the reason why.
