What’s Next Interview with Amy Benziger, Co-Producer of Socap 10

I sat down with Amy Benziger, Co-Producer for the Social Capital Markets conference (Socap), which is in its third year. I’ve attended each year and have enjoyed watching the business for good or social enterprise space unfold and grow. Leading up to this year’s conference I’ll be interviewing a series of thought leaders and Socap speakers and attendees to find out what’s happened in the last year and what’s the next big thing.

As Co-Producer, Amy has a uniquely insider perspective. Hear what she sees as important, why she thinks design thinking could be the next big thing in social enterprise, and more.


Please chime in.  Besides leaving comments, here are 2 ways to weigh in.

1) I recently highlighted the related Impact Challenge competition: Submit 500 words on “What’s Next for Social Enterprise” for the chance to win a free ticket to Socap.   Learn more here.
