    ANDE Annual Conference 2022

    We are thrilled that after two years of virtual conferences, we will be holding our Annual Conference in person in the Washington, DC metropolitan area this year! Our theme, “Resilient Entrepreneurship,” highlights the strength of global entrepreneurs over the last few years while facing multifaceted and dynamic challenges, and the work of our members in supporting them. We have seen the resilience of the SGB sector at work in so many ways – responding to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, finding solutions to climate change, encouraging sustainable businesses, unlocking equal opportunity for entrepreneurs, and enabling ecosystems for this work to thrive around the world.


    The 2022 agenda will feature interactive, member-led and curated sessions on the newest research and reports concerning urgent issues like climate, gender inclusion, and preparing SGBs for the future. The program also gives you opportunities to network, collaborate, and learn with some of the world’s foremost leaders, practitioners, and visionaries dedicated to the sector.

    We rely on ANDE members to help create an agenda that is timely, meaningful, and engaging. After all, this is YOUR annual conference! Sessions this year will include workshops, breakouts, micro-talks, and a fail faire.  Session submissions for the 2022 Annual Conference are now closed.  If you submitted a session idea, expect to hear back by the end of May regarding your submissions status. Due to limited space, not all submissions will be incorporated into the agenda and some admissions may be combined.  Thank you for your interest and contribution!

    Each day will offer a slightly different set up and will feature sessions created by ANDE members for ANDE members, networking, and opportunities to engage, learn, and share knowledge. The agenda will be announced in mid May.
