New Economy Summit Friday at Worcester State

Worcester State University will host the New Economy Summit Friday, Nov. 18. The day-long event will convene social entrepreneurs, social change practitioners, educational institutions, students, the business community, and others who share the goal of creating a just, equitable, and sustainable world.

Organized by the Social Venture Collaborative, the public forum will serve as a powerful forum for making and strengthening connections, as well as building ongoing collaboration.  Participants will engage in various interactive activities designed to establish a regional network and support transformation related to social enterprise, social business, cooperatives, and enterprise-oriented nonprofit organizations. Attendees will identify common challenges faced by local start-ups and brainstorm opportunities and next steps to resolve these and other challenges.

Keynote speakers, a World Café discussion, musicians, panelists and participants from across New England will inspire and motivate people to remain active and connected beyond the Summit, especially in the uncertain aftermath of the 2016 general elections.
