Announcing the SOCAP24 Agenda — Going Deeper: Catalyzing Systems Change!

About Us

Welcome to the Home of the Impact Economy

SOCAP Global is the thought leadership platform for the accelerating movement towards a more just and sustainable economy. We convene a global ecosystem and marketplace – social entrepreneurs, investors, foundation and nonprofit leaders, government and policy leaders, creators, corporations, academics, and beyond – through live and digital experiences that educate, spur conversation, and inspire investment in positive impact.

We work under the leadership of the Sorenson Impact Institute to achieve our mission to unlock the power of markets for impact for all. The Institute helps organizations achieve their impact vision by connecting capital to social and environmental solutions, helping organizations measure, report, and improve impact, and integrating data science and people-centered storytelling into all that it does. The Institute is proudly housed at the University of Utah David Eccles School of Business.

SOCAP and the Sorenson Impact Institute share a vision of an equitable and thriving world where everyone is valued, communities prosper, and the measured impact of our actions guides decision-making.  To bake our values into our DNA and governance, we converted the SOCAP Global organization from a C-Corp to a Public Benefit Corporation (PBC). As a PBC, we are solidifying our commitment to hold ourselves accountable to our global stakeholders. We are committed to operating in an ethical and sustainable manner that is additive to the field of impact and toward our shared vision for positive global outcomes. Together, with our community and event attendees, we drive the conversation for impact and capital forward.

Our mission is to unlock the power of markets for impact for all.

We unite around a shared passion for shaping the possible. SOCAP Global designs experiences to engage and amplify our community of dynamic individuals and organizations who share values of collaboration, curiosity, and a commitment to accelerating social and environmental solutions. In pursuit of that goal, we have convened more than 30,000 people since our first event in 2008.

The foundation for all that we do

Money + Meaning Operating at the intersection of money and meaning, we believe markets create momentum to deliver solutions to the world's toughest problems.
Embrace the Possible Learn while leaning forward. Celebrate leading-edge ideas, experiments and applications, success or failure.
Connect Valuable Strangers Convening a global community – across sectors, issue areas, and geographies – creates unexpected content and connections that spark new relationships and catalyze ideas for progress.
Prioritize Integrity of Impact Unwavering commitment to cut through hype and focus on solutions with real potential for long term change.
Spark Impact Through Stories Curate and share stories that connect at a human level. Commitment to action is driven by stories that touch our hearts, reminding us why we’re doing the work.
Respect the Wisdom of the Crowd Deep experience and fresh insight are equally valuable – solutions won’t evolve by squatting on expertise.
Foster Serendipity Design physical and virtual spaces for unexpected moments of connection that spur interaction, ideation, collaboration, and lifelong relationships.
Always Room in the Big Tent Only with all perspectives represented will we create lasting change.

“This industry uses the power of finance and business to make the world a better place, and SOCAP, which is the biggest convener of all the main stakeholders in the industry, is a big part of the reason why.”
