Social Capital Markets (SOCAP) 14, Igniting Vibrant Communities

SEPTEMBER 2, 2014 - 12:00 PM to SEPTEMBER 5, 2014 - 3:00 PM PT

San Francisco, CA

Igniting Vibrant Communities is the focus of this years’ Social Capital Markets (SOCAP) event, an idea that challenges participants to look for vibrant communities showing successful impact. Examples and possibilities will be shared among participants from around the world – global leaders, local change agents, philanthropic entities, financial advisors, students, researchers, community development professionals and others – who are working to build success at the crossroads of money and meaning. Course content as well as online and offline tools will provide opportunities for learning and ways to connect within and across communities.  Topics include investing, financial inclusion, health, food systems, sharing economy, meaning, resilience and place-based innovation.

Social Capital Media is working toward a new form of capitalism that acknowledges the power of market systems and their capacity for social impact.  The goal is to ignite new, vibrant communities or to build up existing ones through impact investing and social enterprise.
