Would you sell yourself for social change?

By Rosie Sharp

Next week I’ll be attending this event along with some great Bay Area social enterprises, and I’m thrilled to be in such good company. I can’t say I know exactly what to expect, but I’m looking forward to any shocks, surprises, and new lessons to be learned.

SOCAP10 and Hub Bay Area Present: The Life Investment

Next week Hub Bay Area and SOCAP10 will host a thought-provoking event about a new way to invest in social entrepreneurship. Instead of investing in promising social ventures, the Thrust Fund asks investors to consider investing in the entrepreneurs themselves. Will this experiment reveal that the success of a company can rest solely on its visionary entrepreneur? Or will it conclude that you can’t sell yourself for social change? What will returns look like? And what social impact could be created by this endeavor? Lots of questions, and hopefully some answers next week!

Join the discussion with fellow social innovators on March 3rd!
