Canada Day at Social Capital Markets 2010 (SoCap10)
Causeway Social Finance and SocialFinance.ca are pleased to invite you to participate in the 2nd annual Canada Day at the Social Capital Markets conference in San Francisco.
Last year a group of Canadians traveled to Social Capital Markets 2009 (SoCap09) and enjoyed a half-day workshop and evening reception, as well as private briefings throughout the conference itself.
Below are testimonies from two of the participants in Canada Day at SoCap09:
“Last year’s Canada day event was very useful for me in furthering the social enterprise agenda. I was able to meet a number of people face-to-face that I had only previously read about and have been able to follow-up on these new contacts. Presentations were informative and most importantly, inspiring. Further, contacts made at this initial day were kept up throughout the conference giving me an opportunity to discuss and consider SoCap information/presentations in a Canadian context. All-in-all a very good addition to the conference.” -Andrew Wharton, BC Ministry of Housing and Social Development
“Canada Day was a great opportunity to network, learn, and engage with social finance leaders at a local and global level. It provided a fantastic jump start to the conference, and is a necessary element of the SOCAP experience for any Canadian delegate.” -Adam Spence, Social Venture Exchange
Social Capital Markets has emerged as the world’s preeminent conference dedicated to the topic of social finance. It brings together the field’s leading thinkers and practitioners from across North America and abroad.
We are taking advantage of this opportunity by inviting attendees from Canada to a dinner at a local San Francisco restaurant with special guests (TBD) on the evening of October 4th, and a half-day networking and learning event on the morning of October 6th (during a portion of the “unconference” segment of SoCap10).
