The Social Venture Institute (SVI) is an annual gathering and network that offers mission-based entrepreneurs an opportunity to share challenges, successes, and experiences with peers in an atmosphere of trust and goodwill. We’re proud members of SVI and have just registered to attend the annual gathering at Hollyhock for our fourth year in a row.
We’ve proudly been a part of the faculty for the last three years, giving our time in one-on-one consulting sessions sharing our expertise with other missions based businesses working for social change.
Each attendee brings a commitment of social change to their enterprise, whether a for-profit business or a non-profit organization. Over the years, SVI has provided over 2,300 entrepreneurs the opportunity to strengthen their business skills, network with other social change leaders, and rejuvenate their passion and vision.
The format of SVI is highly interactive and experiential. Participants present their business problems to a panel of experienced business leaders and fellow participants. In return, they receive advice, tools, and resources to strengthen and grow their enterprise in a socially conscious way. Based on evaluations and testimonials, participants uniformly reflect that SVI is one of the best investments they’ve made in growing their social purpose enterprises.
Consider attending if you are leader in your business working for social change. There is an application process. The program is for CEOs and leaders of established small businesses and nonprofit enterprises. Pre-approval is required prior to registration. Enrolment is limited and priority will be given to second-stage entrepreneurs. Apply here if you’re interested attending or contact us if you have questions and want to speak with someone who has past experience regularly attending.
