Net Impact 2017

Are You Interested in Social Entrepreneurship?

By 3p Conferences

We’re here to help.

Whether you’re looking to launch a whole new venture or join an existing social enterprise aligned with your passions, this exciting field gives you the opportunity to apply innovative approaches to create scalable solutions.

We've packed the 2016 Net Impact Conference with workshops, panels, and speakers to give future and current social entrepreneurs (like you) skills and connections to make a lasting impact.

Here’s our top three can’t miss events for social entrepreneurs:

Confessions of a Social Entrepreneur

Looking for advice to maximize your impact as a social entrepreneur? Here’s your chance to learn from three social entrepreneurs who have come before you. The panel, consisting of CEO of MilkCrate, the founder of Innov8social, and the founder of BuildingTomorrow, will share what it took to get where they are today, revealing their honest perspective and approach to impact.

Closing Keynotes

We have two closing keynotes who are leading the field in social entrepreneurship:

Kiah Williams is the co-founder of SIRUM, described as the Match.com for unused medicine. The social enterprise has redistributed over four million units of medicine worth $5.6 million across 4 states. SIRUM is saving medicine and saving lives.

Ahmad Ashkar is the CEO and founder of the Hult Prize Foundation, the $1 million competition for social good. The Hult Prize Foundation was named by TIME Magazine as one of the top five initiatives changing the world.

NI16 Pitch Competition

Come listen to eight emerging social entrepreneurs pitch their ideas at the first Net Impact Pitch Competition. They will have four minutes to convince a panel of expert judges and the audience that they are pioneering the next world-changing idea. As an attendee, you’ll have a chance to pick your favorite, and you’ll leave this competition inspired, and just maybe, with the motivation to launch your own social venture.

Are you ready to take on social issues with us? Don’t miss out, register now for the 2016 Net Impact Conference.

We maintain a strong staff of reporters and guest authors in various locations with an interest in your subject matter. Get in touch with us if you would like to have one of our writers present at your event to cover it and write up big picture ideas that transpire or interview conference speakers and attendees on the air. If we don’t have a contributor in your area we’re happy to work with someone you know.
