San Francisco Bay Area
- January 1, 2009
The San Francisco Bay Area is an epicenter of innovation, entrepreneurship, and community engagement. SEA/SFBay was founded in 2009 to ignite a Bay Area social enterprise community that hosted the 2010 Social Enterprise World Forum in San Francisco. The space of Social Enterprise expanded exponentially over the last few years in the Bay Area. An exciting community of impact investors, aligning money with meaning, gathers every year in Fort Mason. New social movements, media and technology are causing and enabling tremendous shifts in legislation, the workplace and the marketplace: our communities are awakening to the opportunity of an impact-driven economy. Our commitment is to facilitate a participatory platform for collective impact, with a vision of a San Francisco Bay Area where everyone has the opportunity to invest, start, partner, work, and purchase from businesses that benefit communities.
