What we're about

Calling all socially conscious professionals! This group is for business owners, entrepreneurs and professionals of all types who put forth the effort to consider the community and the world at large in their business practices. Profit may be the driver of business, but to you, earning profit is not an "either/or" with doing good– you are here to do both. You do not need to be a Benefit Corp or hold B-Corp certification; only be doing something positive that benefits the community.

Let's meet up to network together; meet future clients, partners and mentors, learn what other professionals are doing to find profitability while making positive change in the community, and talk passionately with others who share your business values.

This group charges $14 per month to encourage participation. All dues-paying Meetup members will be considered full members of SoCon with all privileges, including free tickets to every event, a member video, access to add your events on our calendar, and your name and business in our membership directory.
