2014 Social Enterprise Conference


This event is organized and hosted by Columbia Business School.

2014 Social Enterprise Conference

Millennials Rising: What’s Next for Sustainability? 

Featuring Keynotes: 

• Al Gore, Former Vice President

• Alicia Glen, NYC Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development

We are living in promising but turbulent times. Never before has there been such interest in harnessing innovation to find sustainable solutions for communities and the environment, but never have the problems been more urgent, complex or challenging.

While more business leaders are pursuing sustainable strategies, what can be done to accelerate this change and harness the talents of millennials as future sustainable leaders to ensure they realize this potential? What can be done to sustain interest in solving social and environmental issues, sustain funding for these efforts, and sustain the pipeline of social entrepreneurs leading these changes?

Join us at the 2014 Social Enterprise Conference by Columbia Business School and help spark the conversation on driving sustainable change beyond the new millennium:

Sustainable Practices: How are companies successfully ingraining sustainability into the development of their corporate strategy and business practices?
Sustainable Financial Models: What are the challenges to harnessing the power of capital markets to create sustainable impact for the global community and environment?
Sustainable Behaviors: How can design thinking, new behavioral models, and socially-conscious marketing create the right incentives for lasting structural and systems-wide changes?

    One thing that can be done and will be done is creating a prime time television show about compelling stories of social entrepreneurs seeking investment and crowd support for their business. I have that TV show concept and I need your support to make it happen. Contact me to learn more.
