SOCAP (Social Capital Markets) is the world’s largest gathering of socially-motivated investors and entrepreneurs. It’s the conference that holds its place in the market at the intersection of Money & Meaning, the place where good things happen when you meet valuable strangers, the connection you would not have made ordinarily. Because of our specific emphasis on gathering voices across a broad spectrum, you’ll run into more people you would not have run into at typical conferences that are focused either on impact investing or philanthropically-funded social enterprise. We are the conference in the middle, where all the important tribes show up to mingle and share new things.

A $2.7 trillion dollar plus opportunity in health; a critical reframing of the oceans conversation; an exploration of community innovation in places like Louisville and Detroit; art as a tool to change hearts and minds; a look at the historical trend of faith as a change agent; and – as always – a deep exploration of money, meaning and all that lies at the intersection.
That’s just the beginning as SOCAP13 begins to take shape.
