Welcome to the NEXT Economy: A Convening of Business Leaders & Impact Investors
Join us from November 13-15 in Berkeley, CA for SVC’s unique conference experience. The SVC Conference creates an environment where the real challenges, insights, and best practices of leading mission-driven businesses and engaging in impact investing can be discussed and put into action. SVC conferences facilitate peer-to-peer relationship building, and create a community where attendees can enhance their leadership, improve their businesses, build their portfolios, and expand their impact.
Social Venture Circle (SVC) is a membership network that equips entrepreneurs, impact investors, and capacity-builders with connections, money, and expertise in order to build businesses that drive the NEXT economy: one that is regenerative, equitable and prosperous for all.
SVC was established as one of the earliest and most influential peer networks, helping to grow some of the most successful social enterprises in history (Ben & Jerry’s, The Body Shop, KIND). SVC has also facilitated over $220 million investment dollars into more than 330 early-stage social ventures (Zipcar, Stonyfield, Honest Tea). Additionally, SVC has incubated and supported many of the most important social impact organizations and maintains strategic partnerships while leading the field towards a shared vision. With four decades of experience and an extensive community of pioneering impact investors and entrepreneurs, SVC continues to build and galvanize the business world to create social, economic, and environmental change for all.
