GoodCrowd14 Is Going To Be Big – Don’t Miss It
The Social Enterprise and Crowdfunding Conference, GoodCrowd14, on September 26, 2014 at Snowbird is going to be the single most important event of the year at the intersection of social entrepreneurship and crowdfunding.
Professional impact investors and philanthropists will be there to hear pitches from nonprofits and social entrepreneurs. This event isn’t just talking heads, though we’ll have some of the world’s experts on stage, we’ll be doing deals in the hallways.
Our roster of 30 amazing speakers will include:
Doug Ellenoff of Ellenoff Grossman and Schole, the leading law firm in investment crowdfunding
Francis Battista, co-founder of Best Friends Animal Society, the leading organization helping communities reach “no kill” status
Ken Marienau, CEO of Mission Markets, a crowdfunding site for impact investments
Rodney Sampson, author of Kingonomics, articulating the economic vision of Martin Luther King
Eric Weinberg, CEO of Impact Capital Strategies, advisor to the world’s leading impact investors
Fraser Nelson, Executive Director of the Community Foundation of Utah, which is driving social entrepreneurship
Cheryl Snapp Conner, Forbes Contributor and founder of Snapp Conner PR, a leading PR firm
The Wayne Brown Institute will conduct a Social Deal Forum, giving two companies the opportunity to pitch professional investors during the conference and to receive constructive feedback about the pitch from those investors. Any social entrepreneur may apply to present after registering for the conference.
The Community Foundation of Utah will hear five finalists pitch for micro grants of $1,000. While the Foundation won’t guarantee that anyone will receive a grant, they promise that if all five make great pitches, they will all receive grants. Any nonprofit may apply for the micro grant program after registering for the conference.
Registration for the conference before September 1, 2014 is just $60 for the full day, including a continental breakfast and a delicious lunch. A VIP ticket that includes an exclusive reception and dinner with the speakers and sponsors costs just $113.
