Companies of all types are taking a fresh look at the broader impact of their work- how their employees, customers, and their communities are impacted by what and how they produce. While increasingly desirable for leaders to make sure their company has a positive societal impact, it is not often clear how that is done at scale, especially in a way that supports the business goals and financial targets. Enter social entrepreneurship.
One of the most rapidly growing areas within the field of entrepreneurship is that of for-profit social entrepreneurship- innovative, for-profit businesses designed to simultaneously drive a social or environmental impact. The Bay Area is fortunate to be home to the largest concentration of these for-profit social impact startups, many of which are already collaborating with larger traditional companies who are their customers, suppliers, and go-to-market partners.
AGENDA & SPEAKERS will be announced soon.
