The Social Enterprise Conference brings together top leaders, practitioners, and students passionate about social enterprise.   In our 17th year, the conference’s content will focus on the untold truths of Social Enterprise and challenge participants to dare to take the steps necessary to make a difference.  

Past Highlights

In previous years attendees have heard from accomplished speakers, participated in problem solving labs with actual social enterprises from across the globe, and engaged in intimate discussion with participants from diverse backgrounds but similar goals for creating meaningful and sustainable change. Industry leaders such as Ashoka founder Bill Drayton; social innovation journalist and columnist David Bornstein and City Year and Be The Change, Inc. Founder Alan Khazei have been keynote speakers in past SECON conferences.
