Announcing the SOCAP23 Entrepreneur Program Cohort

SOCAP Global March 27, 2023

Meet These Social Entrepreneurs On Stage at SOCAP23

We are proud to announce the redesign of our SOCAP Entrepreneur Program this year. Through the evolution of this annual program, we’re providing a holistic hybrid experience for the SOCAP23 Entrepreneur Program members as well as any sponsored cohorts attending SOCAP. This unique program has been co-designed by our alumni community of founders and will consist of six months of virtual programming on six strategy tracks:

  • Holistic founder wellness
  • Team leadership and culture development
  • Growth and scaling 
  • Investment readiness
  • Impact measurement
  • Storytelling, marketing, and communications

The SOCAP23 Entrepreneur Program cohort will also participate in peer networking opportunities and be actively connected to funders through deal rooms on-site at SOCAP23 October 23-25 in San Francisco. If you aren’t already registered, get your ticket for SOCAP23 now to meet these entrepreneurs at the event!
