    SEED Conference

    A reprise of the successful 2018 gathering, the founders of SOCAP and Impact Hub SF are coming together to join a wide array of leaders for a conference on the seed stage funding and acceleration ecosystem, for a deep dive into what’s working and what’s next; locally, regionally and around the world. Seed stage impact investing and entrepreneurship tends to live in silos across technology, financial inclusion, housing, consumer goods, health, cryptocurrencies, agriculture and food systems …and in geographic regions. We will break down the industry and geographic boundaries that tend to compartmentalize our selective and collective efforts.

    This deep practitioner convening will allow for the exchange of winning strategies, and sharing of near and long-term development plans. Together, we will discuss gaps and opportunities in the sector, and push forward actionable concepts to evolve and augment the ecosystem that supports seed stage ventures.
