SEED: Gathering the Impact Ecosystem

May 19 - May 21

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 tend 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.

WARM UP EVENING – Sunday May 19 – 5-9pm | Networking, Meet Ups and Registration

DAY ONE – May 20 – 9am to 9pm | The Now: What’s Working and What’s Not + Party

DAY TWO – May 21 – 9am to 5pm | The Next: Taking the Seed Stage Ecosystem Into the Future

Expert ‘fish bowl’ assessments, design labs, short form keynotes and plenaries, as well as product and practice demos, will be mixed in to ensure collaborative exchanges that honor that every attendee has expertise to bring to the convening, and that info delivery must be varied, creative and interactive. Space is limited to ensure high-quality idea exchange.

SISTER CONFERENCE: Also join us at TRANSFORM, to see what lies beyond sustainability, and beyond impact as usual, taking place starting 5pm May 22 through 5pm May 24 2019 right after SEED. Interested in coming to both conferences? Sign up for our Transform newsletter for information on discounts!
