IEE Director Speaks at SoCap


IEE Executive Director Ed Church spoke at the Social Capital Markets conference held in October 2010 in San Francisco. Also known as SoCap10, it is an annual conference that attracts 1400 people from 40 countries. He was asked to speak as part of the learning track called Food Systems, on a panel devoted to “Creative Financing: Lessons Learned.”


SoCap is a multi-platform organization dedicated to the flow of capital towards social good. Their conferences connect leading global innovators – investors, foundations, institutions, and social entrepreneurs – to build this market at the intersection of money and meaning.


SoCap is building a new form of capitalism that recognizes our ability to direct the power and efficiency of market systems toward social impact, leading to a more balanced set of “returns.”


IEE coordinated the documentation of session summaries to capture the knowledge and information from the SoCap Conference.
