Social Venture Circle 2020

December 2December 4

About

Social Venture Circle (SVC) is a membership network that equips entrepreneurs, impact investors, and capacity-builders with connections, money, and expertise in order to build businesses that drive the NEXT economy: one that is regenerative, equitable and prosperous for all. Join us and hundreds of your peers December 2-4 in Berkeley, CA for SVC’s annual convening of business leaders and impact investors.

For over 30 years, high-impact business leaders, social entrepreneurs, and impact investors have convened at SVC conferences to have authentic conversations with values-aligned peers and get deals done. SVC’s unique conference experience creates an environment where the real challenges, insights, and best practices of leading mission-driven businesses and engaging in impact investing can be discussed and put into action. SVC conferences facilitate peer-to-peer relationship building and create a community where attendees can enhance their leadership, improve their businesses, build their portfolios, and expand their impact.

At SVC 2020, expect:

  • Facilitated and open networking opportunities
  • Interactive discussions and proactive, action-oriented dialogue among peers
  • Opportunities to meet select early-stage social entrepreneurs raising capital, and begin the due diligence process onsite with other impact investors
  • Sessions that offer key takeaways and practical advice on best practices for social enterprises and impact investors
  • Inspiring and experiential presentations from innovative leaders on the future of mission-driven business
  • A deep cultural foundation that welcomes values-aligned business leaders and investors from a wide range of perspectives

Note: The conference will begin Wednesday, December 2 and run through Friday, December 4 with the likelihood of additional local activities held Saturday, December 5. We recommend reserving a hotel room for at least three total nights, December 2-4, departing on December 5. If you plan to attend our national pitch event or any morning workshops, we suggest rerving the night of December 1 as well. We will hold a closing circle the morning of December 5 for all of those able to attend.
