The Social Enterprise Alliance’s Summit 14 will take place on April 13-16 in Nashville, Tenn. The conference will feature four days of panels, two dozen training sessions and more than 60 speakers.
SEA is the leading membership organization in North America for enterprising nonprofits, social purpose businesses, and educators who come together to promote financially sustainable social innovation through networking opportunities, educational forums, strategic partnerships, and impact legislation. Since 2000, SEA’s Summit has been the signature event for learning, collaborating and creating a social enterprise movement through collective inspiration and action.
“Social enterprise is the missing middle sector between the traditional worlds of government, nonprofits and business,” said Kevin Lynch, President and CEO of Social Enterprise Alliance. “As social needs continue to spike, this new way of doing businesses is emerging as a self-sustaining, market-based method of meeting social needs.”
This year’s Summit includes a line of inspiring keynote speakers:
