    Conscious Entrepreneurship: Building a Business From the Inside Out

    A simple idea, trusted and developed, can change the course of our lives and that of society. Every great company and invention came, at first, as an idea. Taking these ideas and bringing them into the world is what entrepreneurs have always done.

    This takes awareness, confidence, and developing great teams. Today more than ever there is a new brand of entrepreneurs seeking to lead companies with mindfulness and social intelligence.

    Join us for this meetup at LinkedIn San Francisco where we will take a deep dive into the art of conscious entrepreneurship – how we can create successful & innovative companies that align with our greater purpose.
