Back in Person! The Impact Movement's Flagship Event
SOCAP is the largest and most diverse impact investing community in the world- and it is back in-person again!
Our flagship is the vanguard of the emerging global impact economy – convening ideas and capital to catalyze world change. The largest gathering of investors, entrepreneurs, and social impact leaders come together to accelerate progress against the world’s toughest challenges through market-based solutions.
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 content experiences that educate, spur collaboration, and inspire investment in positive impact. SOCAP unlocks the potential of markets to accelerate impact and have convened more than 100,000 people since our first event.
For more than 13 years, SOCAP Flagship has been the leading convener in the space.
As we eagerly anticipate the return to in-person convenings, we are excited to announce a new partnership with Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA) to host the SOCAP22 flagship conference. YBCA is located in the heart of downtown San Francisco, with an airy, welcoming physical layout and adjacency to the vibrant Yerba Buena Gardens. Multiple restaurants, hotels and cultural venues are very close by.
We look forward to strolling through the Yerba Buena Gardens with you in October 2022.

Fund a Donated Ticket to SOCAP22
Every year, SOCAP donates hundreds of tickets to the entrepreneurs, artists and culture-makers that are so important to this work.
Consider adding one of these tickets to your cart to help fund and grow this program.
About our new location
SOCAP22 will take place October 17-20, 2022 downtown San Francisco, at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and at an adjacent venue.
We will partner with TripZero again to offer discounted hotel rooms.
This is a big reason for our move. The Yerba Buena Center for the Arts is walking distance from a BART/Muni station, meaning that you can commute from Oakland and the East Bay, or arrive directly from SFO or Oakland airport using public transportation.
Cancellation policy and other requirements
Currently (December 2021) San Francisco ordinances require proof of COVID vaccination to enter indoor public places. We will abide by the ordinances in place next October. We recommend that you be vaccinated and have proof of vaccination readily available.
Before flying into the United States, check vaccine and COVID test requirements to enter the United States.
I had a ticket for SOCAP20 in-person.
In December 2020, we sent an email asking all the SOCAP20 in-person attendees how they wanted to use their credit. The options were to get a SOCAP21 and Integrate21 Virtual ticket and a discount for SOCAP22, or to get a SOCAP22 ticket.
We will send out an email to SOCAP20 attendees with either a discount code or a SOCAP22 registration confirmation early December 2021, depending on what you chose.
Note that if you opted out of our marketing emails or if you changed emails since you bought your SOCAP2o ticket, you may not be receiving our emails. Please contact [email protected] to update your information or with any question about your ticket.
I am registered, but I am not receiving emails
No: Please check with us to make sure there is not a typo in your email address.
Yes: There might be several possible reasons: maybe you used a different email address than you remember, or you may have used an email address that is now obsolete and has not yet been updated. Finally, if you have opted out of our marketing emails, you may not receive updates about SOCAP22. Please contact [email protected] so that we can help you figure out what’s going on.
If at all possible, use unique email addresses to register multiple attendees, even if you use the same first name and last name. It will ensure that we have easy access to the records for all your tickets.
We are allowing one buyer to buy multiple tickets with one email address, so that groups can take advantage of the early bird rates, even though they not quite know who is attending. However, once you know who is attending, please contact us at [email protected] to give us each attendee’s name, job title, company and a unique email address for each attendee. We will need all those pieces of information in order to print your badge at registration.
We will not contact you to remind you to send us your list of attendees.
If you have not updated your list of attendees prior to the conference, please make sure that the persons presenting themselves at registration know the name of the ticket buyer.
We understand that you may not be able to attend all days in person. At this point, we cannot split tickets into day passes or reprint passes at the registration desk. If you want different people to attend on different days, you will have to hand out the physical badge to your colleague in order to share a ticket.
Check this FAQ closer to the event, should we be able to accommodate you.
