In less than a week, ImpactCity will head to San Francisco for the 11th edition of SoCap (Social Capital Markets), the world's leading conference activating the capital markets to drive positive social and environmental impact. This conference brings together impact investors, social entrepreneurs, philanthropists, business leaders, and other innovators from across the world in a unique cross-sector approach to catalyze collaboration for change.
Since 2008, SOCAP has hosted over 20,000 attendees from more than 70 countries, uniting voices across a broad spectrum to catalyze impactful and sometimes unexpected connections. ImpactCity will be at SoCap to connect with like-minded changemakers, explore the latest trends and seek new opportunities to create global impact. The ultimate goals is to connect with social entrepreneurs who are looking for an impact startup ecosystem that can scale up their business. ImpactCity can help such startups by providing access to markets, relevant networks, capital, workspace, create visibility and facilitate experiments.
