Social Enterprise Conference 2012
The Social Enterprise Conference is one of the world’s leading forums to engage in dialogue, debate, and expression around social enterprise. Over time, the Conference has become an arena to explore innovative ideas that challenge the status quo and inspire a call to action.
This year’s conference will feature two days of rich content at the Harvard Business School and Harvard Kennedy School. The Saturday schedule is designed for a smaller and more practitioner-focused audience, while the Sunday schedule will feature about 100 speakers with a more general focus with a Pitch for Change Competition and Career Fair.
The Conference is entirely student-run, jointly hosted by students from the Harvard Business School and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.
The following are key reasons why we’re excited to organize the conference:
- To showcase innovative ideas, trends, and people within social enterprise to encourage better solutions to the world’s most pressing social problems;
- To expand participants’ understanding of various disciplines and models within social enterprise, with an emphasis on sharing knowledge and increasing collaboration among conference participants; and
- To provide a forum for practitioners to receive feedback so that they continually evolve their models to solving global social problems.
The 2012 Harvard Social Enterprise Conference is themed Innovation, Inclusion, & Impact. These three elements are the key ingredients of successful social enterprises.
