Author and professor Chris Rabb to speak at Summit15
Chris Rabb, author of Invisible Capital: How Unseen Forces Shape Entrepreneurial Opportunity, will challenge Summit15 participants to look at business and social good in new ways. Rabb is an adjunct professor at Temple University’s Fox School of Business.
“I want to challenge assumptions,” he said. “I want to engage people to think more broadly, more boldly, more creatively about what success means, to look at wealth in a broader sense, to look at business success through the lens of non-material abundance, to embrace the framework of collective success.”
“Chris is a thought leader in the field of entrepreneurship and understands the nuts and bolts of successful social enterprise. More importantly, he sees how the democratization of entrepreneurship can become a pathway to greater social inclusion and economic opportunity, which is a critical perspective to bring to Summit15 in September,” said Jim Schorr, CEO of SEA.
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.
