Now that we’re all clear on the definition of “social enterprise,” how to bring Philly’s many funders together to help those enterprises solve our region’s biggest problems?
On the evening of Wednesday, March 14, some of those funders will convene and attempt to figure it out at WHYY’s “Building a Successful Investor Ecosystem for 21st Century Philadelphia” panel featuring bigwigs such as Margaret Berger Bradley of Ben Franklin Technology Partners and Sidney Hargro of Philanthropy Network Greater Philadelphia.
(Hargro told us when he was hired last year that one of his high-level goals for the network included, whoa, making sure it’s a part of cross-sector discussions about solving Greater Philadelphia’s toughest problems).
The panel is organized by local impact investing advocacy organization ImpactPHL and international investor network Social Capital Markets, or SOCAP, which calls itself “the vanguard of the emerging global impact economy.”
Psst, use the code “Friends365” for $5 off your ticket — and pair this explainer video from SOCAP’s 2017 conference with our Social Entrepreneurship 101 lesson.
