SOCAP taps impact-investing leaders to curate “spotlight” sessions

The team at


The Social Capital Markets conference, or SOCAP, convenes on the San Francisco waterfront for the 10th time October 10–13.

Organizers have turned over a portion of the conference to guest curators to “spotlight” key questions facing the impact community.

B-Lab, the nonprofit leading the B Corp movement, will bring together leaders to explore how businesses can be “systemic change agents for good.” Mission Investors Exchange, the network of impact investing foundations, will dig into how foundations can work with partners to bring more capital to bear on social and environmental problems. CultureBank, founded by Deborah Cullinan and Penelope Douglas, will explore the role of artists and cultural movements in promoting lasting change.

Other curators include family office Gary Community Investments and big thinker Jed Emerson.

As a SOCAP media partner, ImpactAlpha is pleased to be able to offer a $250 discount through Sept. 29. Register now.
