The Social Enterprise Alliance (SEA) launches new Summit15 website & SEA Connect—a New Social Networking Service
In preparation for SEA’s upcoming national conference in September, the organization today launched its Summit15 website. The website will have frequent announcements regarding programming and speakers and information on Summit registration and logistics. The website will also feature “SEA Connect,” a new interactive platform that allows Summit attendees to message fellow attendees, participate in group discussions, sign up for activities and grow their network.
Summit15 will be held September 16-18 in Denver. SEA expects to host over 500 participants who will hear from about 80 speakers. The SEA Summit provides the opportunity to learn, connect and collaborate with thought leaders in the field.
“The Summit is where leaders in the field reunite to share successes and challenges and where those new to social enterprise come to learn and be inspired,” said Jim Schorr, President and CEO of SEA. “There is no better place to build relationships, generate ideas and plug into what’s now and what’s next in social enterprise.”
Social Enterprise Alliance is the champion for social enterprise in the United States. Social enterprises are businesses whose primary purpose is the common good. They use the methods and disciplines of business and the power of the marketplace to advance their social, environmental and human justice causes. SEA is dedicated to helping social enterprises succeed and draw attention to the sector. It has more than 1000 members and 17 chapters in cities/states.
