SEA Summit of Summits 2022

SEA is organizing its annual summit from September 7th - 9th, 2022. Attend our event and hear from national and global leaders in the social enterprise sector, local movement builders from our local Chapters and inspiring stories from our network partners about how their unusual business model enabled their stakeholders to survive and thrive during the pandemic. This will be a virtual summit, with potentially a few local in-person events taking place in parallel.
