SOCAP are now accepting applications for the SOCAP16 Social Entrepreneur Scholarship. If you are an innovator who is using business as a force for positive change in the world, we want you to apply to join us in 2016.
Entrepreneurs are the heart of SOCAP. Dating from our first event in 2008, SOCAP has awarded full scholarships to hundreds of entrepreneurs who are working on the front lines of impact. In 2015, we gave scholarships to over 150 of the world’s most innovative social entrepreneurs, who came to the Fort Mason Center from over 35 countries across the globe.
Social entrepreneurs are the heart of SOCAP. They identify new solutions to pressing issues, balancing true impact with sustainable business models. We prioritize support for inspiring entrepreneurs, as they are the future of the social capital markets.
