1+ Many: The Power of Convening for Social Impact

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Even in our high tech world, sometimes it takes people actually coming together to really make things happen. Austin has proven this theory for many years with incubators, accelerators, research centers, funding events and with gatherings like SXSW. Recently, the city has exploded with a plethora of coffee shops, co-working spaces, incubators, accelerators and entrepreneurial hubs with more to come as people seek out places to convene and share ideas.
In social impact, where companies create not only market value but also contribute to the social, environmental and civic good, perhaps the power of convening becomes even more relevant. So how does all of this work? Is the infrastructure in place for Austin to be a top city for social impact? What do we need to create and what can we learn from those who have blazed that path around the country and around this globally connected city? Join experts and entrepreneurs who are leading this charge for an informative and engaged discussion.
