Join us at our Virtual Showcase!

Hear greater Boston's most innovative nonprofit leaders present their solutions to our region's most challenging social issues. The Social Innovator Showcase is the Social Innovation Forum's signature event, typically bringing together an audience of more than 350 business executives, philanthropists, community leaders, and others interested in helping these organizations achieve their visions and expand their impact. This year's event is going virtual as a two-part series. Part one is on May 28, and part two is on June 3The speaking program will run an hour and be followed by a half-hour Q&A session with the Social Innovators. Please note that if you are planning to register someone other than yourself for the event (team member, professional acquaintance, etc.) you must use each person's unique email address (rather than your own) otherwise they will NOT be able to access the Zoom webinar.

With the challenging times that we currently live in, it is more important than ever to support our nonprofits that are on the ground delivering needed services. This event is intended for those interested in supporting the 2020 Social Innovator cohort as potential funders, mentors, or connectors. In each, four of our Innovators will deliver a five-minute pitch, telling the story of their organization's work and impact, and inviting potential investors and supporters to become involved.
