The Social Capital Markets Conference or SOCAP as it is better known has in a few short years become an important impact investing conference globally. The annual event, founded by Kevin Jones and now in its sixth year brings together entrepreneurs, experts, industry leaders, fund managers and government/public policy experts for three days of intense, stimulating and inspiring discussion and debate.
In 2013, SOCAP will be taking place in San Francisco, California from September 3 – 6th. However, SOCAP has always been a community-built event, which is why SOCAP is opening up more than ever this year with SOCAP Open.
In a new experiment of collective community intelligence and democratization, SOCAP wants you – the global community present on the Ennovent Network and beyond – to publicly submit session ideas for SOCAP13, and/or vote up the ideas you want to see happen at Fort Mason this Fall (September 3-6).
So far SOCAP Open has collected dozens of ideas from the City of San Francisco on urban innovation, an entrepreneur in South America on climate adaptation, an investment intermediary in Zürich on ecosystem technology and dozens more. While SOCAP is seeking out of box ideas, they’re also looking to source trends & innovations that you’re seeing within SOCAP13′s 5 core themes.
The team at Ennovent has been shortlisted to be on a couple of these session ideas that are currently up for votes – a session on Ecosystem Tools & Platforms hosted by The Artha Platform as well as a session on Due Diligence in Impact Investing. For us to share our thoughts, experiences and insights with this global audience, we need your support and votes!
Beyond these, SOCAP13 is also seeking new ideas for collaboration and discussion. What are you seeing, hearing, experiencing that needs to be at SOCAP13 this year? Submit your idea by June 17th.
You can also take a moment to learn more about the Ennovent Network, our answer to an Ecosystem tool in the form of a global community that works together to accelerate innovations for sustainability. We look forward to meeting you at SOCAP13!
