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:
The experience was exciting. I had to connect with other entrepreneurs all over the world. It was a good way to network and learn – NutriMeal
The SOCAP accelerator program was a positive and enlightening experience for me as it focused on the unique needs of social entrepreneurs that the majority of accelerators out there just don’t have any knowledge of. Additionally, it was inspiring to be around other founders who were trying to bring positive change to the world. It’s a different energy to be around double and triple bottom line change-makers vs purely profit driven companies – ZONEZ.tv
Such a high quality experience and series of events! No matter what area you work in or your level of experience, you’ll walk away incredibly enriched. The connections and warm introductions with speakers and fellow entrepreneurs is invaluable and will give you advantage. Being a part of SOCAP legitimizes your place in the space. – Citefull
