Transforming the World of Business.
Two decades ago, the idea that business could be based in social mission and impact was radical. Through 25 years of convening investors, innovators, and leaders, Social Venture Institute has contributed to a global movement of socially responsible entrepreneurship.
Join us on Cortes Island September 22 – 26 to take part in a dynamic gathering of mission-driven leaders who are committed to generating positive impact through social venture.
Now Sold Out!
Attendance is limited, and this year will be our most intimate experience yet. The SVI Producer Team is carefully curating a small, but diverse cohort. If you have been longing for a more intimate SVI experience, with a little less crowd and a lot more space, this is the year to join.
Learn with the best.
SVI is highly interactive and experiential
Interactive skill-building workshops cover a range of topics from strategy and marketing to personal leadership and equity training. These workshops will also be recorded so you have the choice of attending live or watching on your own schedule later on.
Throughout the gathering you will have opportunities to connect deeply with like-minded leaders through breakouts and peer coaching circles. In one-on-one coaching sessions, you’ll also have the chance to talk with a subject matter expert about a challenge you’re facing. In addition, all SVI alumni join an online community to share ideas, make asks, and meet throughout the year.
"SVI was exactly what I had hoped for - a place to reconnect, be inspired, and be reminded with why I love business as a vehicle of change."
"I was looking for a deep-dive into the social venture sphere: to learn, connect with leaders in the field, and come away with tools to help build a better world. SVI delivered."
"SVI allowed me to connect with others in the engaged in social purpose and purpose-driven work in an intense and comprehensive way that I have never experienced anywhere else."
"SVI offered a caring, compassionate space to discuss the very real problems and challenges being faced every day by social ventures and organizations. The honesty and willingness to share, and the genuine desire to help and support, truly impressed and humbled me."
"SVI helped me take charge of my business and put its destiny in my own hands. It helped me envision where I want my business to go and how I can design it to help build the life I want to lead!"
"SVI is redefining the conference landscape with dynamic programming and meaningful content."
