Who You'll Meet at the 2019 Bay Area Impact Summit

ONE WORLD's 5th Bay Area Impact Summit will bring together local founders and funders to accelerate social impact in the Bay and beyond. We know that one of the biggest draws- and questions- when considering attending an event like this is, “who will be there?”

A stellar lineup of entrepreneurs, investors and professionals are gathering together with us. We’re getting so excited to connect our community at the BAIS. Check out the full list of speakers, judges, presenting entrepreneurs and attendees below. There are still a few tickets left. We hope you’ll join us!

Social Enterprise Funding: Advice from the Experts

Next month will mark ONE WORLD’s 5th Impact Summit, bringing together early stage investors and social enterprises. As we prepare the 10 social entrepreneurs who will present as part of the program, we are often providing our council on how to present to the audience.

And while there is a ton of advice for traditional high-tech start ups on fundraising, what about for social entrepreneurs who are using the for profit business model to address social and environmental challenges? How might they approach the process? I reached out to several of the top investors and experts in the field, here is what they offered.

And The Presenters Are... (Meet The 2019 Bay Area Impact Summit Demo Day Finalists!)

These companies are actively scaling social impact in their communities and we are looking forward to showcasing these founders and their enterprises at the event. Thank you to all the entrepreneurs that applied!
