Join the Alliance at SOCAP 15 – a conference dedicated to increasing the flow of capital towards social good. Once again, the Alliance is partnering with Social Capital Markets, or SOCAP, to offer scholarships for clean cooking entrepreneurs to attend the annual event. The conference, from October 6-9 in San Francisco, will feature a week of panels, workshops and networking with investors, foundations, governments, and other social entrepreneurs.
This follows on the Alliance’s efforts at SOCAP for the past two years to highlight the sector's progress by hosting a networking session, showcases, and panels featuring promising companies in the clean cooking sector. Social entrepreneurs are the core of SOCAP. They identify new solutions to pressing issues, balancing true impact with sustainable business models.
This year, SOCAP will support scholarship recipients with the following:

For the second year, SOCAP will partner with The Gratitude Network to host The Gratitude Awards @SOCAP. This additional award opportunity brings unique recognition and resources to the winning social entrepreneurs in the categories of education, community development, and environment/sustainability. Award recipients are provided meetings with influential business leaders, as well as ongoing mentorship and entrepreneur training in appreciation of their work and in support of their success.
