SOCAP24: Going Deeper, Catalyzing Systems Change — Tracks and Curation Councils Released!

SOCAP Entrepreneur Program: A Big ‘Thank You’ to Our Facilitators

SOCAP Global October 11, 2022

Gratitude to Those Who Supported Our Entrepreneurs

Over the years, SOCAP has endeavored to provide more value for our Entrepreneur Program participants, including creating relevant content each year to help them address their most pressing challenges and needs. Each year, the sessions look a little different but typically revolve around topics like founder wellness, investment readiness, storytelling and pitching, and team leadership and culture development. 

This year is the first time we developed a robust hybrid program for our entrepreneurs, and we could not have launched the virtual portion without the incredible support and expertise of our facilitators. We want to give a big shout-out to the members of the SOCAP community below who have stepped up this year (and in previous years) to support, work with, and learn along with our entrepreneurs. We truly appreciate and value the time, investment, and expertise they share with the entrepreneurs, who will pitch their ideas on stage at SOCAP22!
