Social Capital Markets Ahoy!


SOCAP10 The Third Annual Social Capital Markets Conference (SOCAP10) will convene the social enterprise community after a milestone year that has included evidence of “an additional $120 billion in untapped resources for socially-minded companies, a proliferation of investment funds of $100 million each and a new index to help investors better target their financing”.

SOCAP10 starts tomorrow, Monday October 4-6, 2010 at San Francisco’s Fort Mason Center and follows upon two highly successful SOCAP conferences in 2008 and 2009.  Those last two years, the world’s leading social innovators came to SOCAP and successfully defined the social enterprise landscape and validated the space.

There will be many different tracks and panels, including one on Social Enterprise in conflict zones such as the Middle East.  This year, Kevin Jones and the 1000 investors, entrepreneurs, business leaders and foundations will help define “What’s next”!
