Social Venture Institute (SVI), the now legendary crafted conference, offers the mission-based entrepreneur an opportunity to share challenges with peers in an atmosphere of trust and goodwill. SVI participants run enterprises built around values and meaning. They face numerous challenges, as well as isolation, while growing enterprises that maintain a values mission. Each attendee brings a commitment of social change to their company, whether a for-profit business or a non-profit organization. Since 1996, SVI has provided over 1,500 entrepreneurs across North America the opportunity to strengthen their business skills, network with other social impact entrepreneurs, and rejuvenate their passion and vision.
