Spotlight on 10th anniversary

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the conference and to celebrate, organizers reached out to five impact leaders who will serve as guest curators. Each curator will focus on a core inquiry and use multiple sessions and formats to explore it at SOCAP. Here are sneak peeks of their spotlights.


Entrepreneur Scholarship Winners

Over 100 promising entrepreneurs from over 30 countries were selected to receive scholarships to attend SOCAP17. These innovative social entrepreneurs  were chosen for their outstanding ideas, inspiring stories and passion for creating sustainable business models.
