UC Berkeley-Haas is hosting the first annual Future of Social Ventures Conference on April 6-7, 2017. This conference will feature speakers and interactive sessions with experts in the field of social impact, as well as presentations from the top finalists of the 2017 Global Social Venture Competition.

The conference will bring together members of the social impact community to advance practice, sharing, learning, and acceleration for social ventures. Professionals from Omidyar Network, OpenIDEO, and Tideline will lead sessions and workshops on best practices for growing social organizations. The conference will kick-off Friday morning with our Featured Keynote – a Fireside Chat on Omnipreneurship with His Excellency Amr Al Dabbagh, Chairman and CEO of the Al-Dabbagh Group and Founding Chairman of the Stars Foundation and Philanthropy University, and Professor Laura Tyson, Director of the Berkeley-Haas Institute for Business and Social Impact.

The top 18 social ventures of the Global Social Venture Competition, selected from close to 600 applicants worldwide, will give their final presentations to conference attendees and judges as they compete for $80,000 in prize money. Past winners include organizations such as Revolution Foods, Samasource, Sanergy, and BLITAB.
