Please join us on Friday October 5th for the 2012 Social Enterprise Conference.


As we move into the second decade of the new millennium, we live in an increasingly networked world powered by technological innovations that are redefining connectedness and transforming business. For social enterprise, these changes have the potential to produce groundbreaking business models, introduce innovative approaches for scaling enterprises, reach new audiences and mobilize additional resources to improve society:

  • How have social enterprises leveraged new channels to improve existing business models and create platforms to better enable, amplify and capture social, economic and environmental value?
  • What emerging technologies and ideas will drive the social enterprises of the future?
  • How can businesses better manage socially relevant issues in a ubiquitously networked world?

By bringing together industry experts, thought leaders and practitioners, the 2011 Social Enterprise Conference will examine how the social enterprise sector has and will continue to explore and capitalize on new avenues of business brought to light by technological innovation.
