Highlights From Previous Years

Great speakers

Past year speakers have included mission-aligned CEOs including Chad Dickerson, former CEO of Etsy, leading investors including Sunny Vanderbeck (Satori Capital), Scott Wu (Omidyar) and Ira Ehrenpreis (DBL Partners) and industry leaders including Meghan French Dunbar from Conscious Company Media, and Nichol Bradford from Transformative Tech Lab.

Healthy Debate

Our previous summit included thoughtful panels highlighting different perspectives on balancing mission and returns, and the art (and science) of focusing on both simultaneously. Speakers dove into challenging issues such as conscious M&A and strategies for measuring how well mission-aligned businesses manage to stick to their missions. We also discussed investment challenges including managing a cap table with investors that have different priorities, and family offices and foundations as a source of capital.


After a full day of panels, discussions and fireside conversations, attendees were invited to the Redwood Room to continue networking. Approximately 40% of the attendees attended the VIP dinner with speakers and presenting companies, continuing conversations and building closer relationships.

Date: April 13th and 14th, 2020

Venue: Battello and the Westin in Jersey City, New Jersey
