Neighborhood Economics

Tuesday, September 13th  |  8:00am – 7:30 pm

Tickets start at $345 (ticket purchase includes $200 discount on SOCAP16 registration)

Since the very beginning of SOCAP, we have been betting that a movement is stirring all around the world that intersects money and meaning towards an economy that supports the kind of world we all believe should exist.

Over the last few years we have been inspired how local innovators are pioneering this future. From inner city neighborhoods of Baltimore to rural agriculture towns of California, local innovators are discovering that it’s not only jobs that are important, but growing local ownership, access to capital, and especially local wealth creation.

While the centralized hedge funds of Wall Street may still dominate headlines, a new story of resilience and renewal is taking shaping in neighborhoods all over North America. Join us on Tuesday, September 13th and join with hundreds who are grounding impact investing and social entrepreneurship in their own neighborhoods, towns, and cities.
