#StartingGood Social Enterprise Virtual Summit

unnamed

Hello, change makers! We are excited to formally announce the #StartingGood Social Enterprise Virtual Summit, a free webinar for social entrepreneurs and aspiring change makers.

In 2014, StartSomeGood held a virtual summit that brought together various experts and speakers to talk about tools and tactics for creating social change. From March 21-31, 2017 we’re doing it again, only bigger and better than before!

We are bringing together some of the world’s most inspiring and insightful entrepreneurs, academics and trainers to provide practical tips on how to get started, tools for social change, avoiding burn-out, and much more.

You will hear from social entrepreneurs further along in their journey, who will share their mistakes to help you avoid them, and what they’ve learned along the way. You will have access to some of the best online trainers in storytelling, fundraising, personal sustainability and marketing.

Social Enterprise Virtual Summit: What do you want to learn about?

We’re pretty sure this guy is checking out a Virtual Summit.

With so many global challenges, individuals are constantly seeking to create the change they want to see in the world. We believe everyone can be a changemaker, and our platform enables those who are ready to take action. However, we also believe that it is important to give anyone the skills, knowledge and motivation to turn ideas into a reality.

To help with this, we’re going to be hosting a Social Enterprise Virtual Summit. This will be a series of video interviews related to social entrepreneurship, from social entrepreneurs and thought leaders. We already have some of our own ideas, but we want to hear from you!

What would you like to learn about? Are there certain topics you’re interested in? What would help you in your journey?

Who would you like to hear from? This can be anyone who inspires you or who is the best at what they do.

We want to make this the best experience for you, so share your thoughts here! https://goo.gl/forms/NOihQX10wxWDfAph2
