Would you sell yourself to change the world?

As social entrepreneurs scavenge for resources to fuel their mission, a new age is dawning in social capital. The Thrust Fund is based on faith in "The People" rather than "The Idea." Offering 3-6% of their life's earnings, these Social Entrepreneurs are seeking $300-$600K to supercharge their social impact now.

Join the Social Capital Markets and Hub Bay Area communities for an evening with people putting their lives on the line in a new mixture of trust and risk, power and money, giving and receiving, hope and fear. A new force to get the things done that need to be done may be emerging. People powered capital; a movement, not an asset class. Be part of it.

Join the Social Capital Markets and Hub Bay Area communities for an innovative evening of crowd-sourced debate that tackles the fundamental challenges of the modern social entrepreneur. The debate will be followed by time to enjoy the cash bar and mingle with fellow Bay Area social entrepreneurs. Hear plans for SOCAP10 and opening of Hub SoMa. You don’t want to miss this!
