Why Should Social Entrepreneurs Come to SOCAP?

We asked alumni scholarship awarded social entrepreneurs to share with us what they took away from their experience at SOCAP. Here are some of their takeaways in their own words:
Every social entrepreneur ready to scale, raise funds, and expand to national or international partnerships, ought to attend SOCAP as a scholar. It’s a transformational experience to be alongside your peers from all corners of the world who are also seeking to make long-term impactful changes in their communities. –Christina McDougall, Hoosier Farmers Markets
Attending SOCAP as a scholarship entrepreneur is an amazing opportunity to meet other people who believe in the intersection of money and meaning from the grassroots to institutional investors. Putting all of these people in the same place is a rare opportunity to spark potential collaborations with people we might not get the chance to meet otherwise. -Jake Stika, Next Gen Men
The Impact Accelerator was an extraordinary opportunity to learn from and network with social entrepreneurs from around the globe. The sessions and keynote were valuable and provided up-close interaction with leaders and experts in different fields. –Leah Lizarondo, 412 Food Rescue
