Social Venture Institute Banff

At the upcoming Social Venture Institute: Banff conference to be held on July 6-8 at Banff Centre, leaders in the field will gather to strengthen how they use business as catalyst for impact. Moving Mountains Initiative and BCCF are sponsoring 10 tickets to the conference for anyone keen to connect with founders, executive directors, presidents, entrepreneurs and who Lozano calls “people calling the shots for businesses doing good in the world.”

For more information and to request a spot, please connect with with “SVI: Banff” in the subject line of your email. The event sells out and we anticipate they’ll be a lot of interest in this, so please reach out soon.
