SEED 2019, May 20-21, San Francisco
A gathering focused on building the seed-stage social enterprise ecosystem (funders + entrepreneurs). This year, the themes are radical inclusion, scale, and alternative finance. It’s a very high- energy, “do” oriented gathering featuring labs, workshops, an Angel Tank (where “angels" actually commit to fund at the conference) and ample time for networking.

TRANSFORM: Climate, Communities, Capital, May 22-24, San Francisco
A broader gathering that uses the context of Climate, Communities, Capital to focus on not just the need for transformation (moving beyond sustainability and impact) but HOW to transform. We’re creating a movement for systems change that focuses on action not talk and the power of entrepreneurs coming together with the right kinds of capital. The focus is interaction and active learning in the form of labs, workshops, small group discussions. This year, we’ve developed a Field Guide for Transformation - a powerful and road-tested framework for systems change: we’re rolling it out at the gathering, and workshopping it with attendees. This is an inaugural, barn raising gathering, kicking off a year of content, community/network building, resource sharing, and pop ups around the world. Join the movement, register here.
