Innovation for Social Change: A Venture Cafe Experience, powered by Quorum

Monday, Apr 30, 2018 | 7:30 PM-10:15 PM

Social needs can\u2019t be addressed by maintaining the status quo. Change requires a holistic exploration of the people, policies and issues surrounding a problem \u2013 and a willingness to think beyond existing circumstances.<\/p>\n\n


Innovation for Social Change will focus on the people invested in movements and will take a deep dive into the ideas and businesses developing scalable, systems-changing solutions.<\/p>\n\n
