SOCAP Open Submission Period Extended to July 13, 12pm PST. Voting will begin on July 14!
SOCAP Open is core to what SOCAP is about. We ask our community for their ideas to help drive the conversation at our flagship event — everyone is invited to share, no matter where you live, what job you hold, or the size of your organization. Each year, hundreds of ideas are submitted through SOCAP Open providing up to half of the event’s content.
On this page, you can review what sessions others have submitted. This is a chance to see where the field is headed and what others are working on across all sectors, industries, and scales within impact investing and social entrepreneurship. During the voting period (July 7 to 15), you can upvote the sessions you would most like to see live at SOCAP22. You can review the timeline below and find links to submit your own SOCAP Open session!
The SOCAP22 Open Timeline and Process
The SOCAP Content team curates content from many sources: listening to the field, reading, art, partners, and SOCAP Open. We synthesize lots of information to bring you leading-edge ideas and practical applications. Here’s how we handle the submissions from SOCAP Open:
June 8 to July 13: Pitch your session idea! Submit your proposal to the SOCAP Open online portal (available on this page starting June 8).
July 14 to July 22: Upvote your favorite session! The community voting period is live. Help shape the content further by casting a vote for session submissions.
July 22 to July 29: Committee reading and selection. A committee of readers, including the SOCAP22 content team, read all submissions, discuss as a group, and use a decision matrix to make final content selections.
August 1: Acceptance Letters sent to session organizers. If your session is accepted into SOCAP22, you will receive a letter detailing the next steps to confirm your participation.
August 10: SOCAP Open session confirmations due. If you are unable to confirm your session by this time the content team will give your slot to an alternate contributor.
We will announce accepted SOCAP Open sessions for SOCAP22 before the end of summer. We can’t wait to read your submission(s)!
