What we're about

"Action without vision is only passing time, vision without action is merely day dreaming, but vision with action can change the world." -- Nelson Mandela¬

This group is a social impact accelerator. It inspires and sparks social entrepreneurs, both from the nonprofit and for-profit space, to solve problems and scale impact. We believe entrepreneurship will solve every problem that society faces today because where most of the world sees problems and challenges, entrepreneurs see opportunity. With a business mindset, we believe that we can grow social businesses in a sustainable way and make the world a better place. This group takes passion and big vision and translates it into action!

It is our goal to be hosting San Diego's FIRST SocialGood Startup Weekend! Also, we are working towards opening a new co-working space as a part of the global network of ImpactHub in the near future.
