To Support Systems Change, Change the System

Amanda Levinson N/A

Pitch contests. Brand partnerships. Hackathons. Accelerators. If you’re a social entrepreneur, chances are you’ve engaged in at least one of these to get more exposure and funding. But are these Silicon Valley-born, traditional startup growth models suited to the social impact sector? Or do they ultimately distort, constrain, and exploit the work of social entrepreneurs? This panel will tackle these provocative issues, and discuss how and why we might need to change the system to authentically support the deep work of care and repair many social entrepreneurs are struggling to achieve in their communities.
