Future of Responsible Entrepreneurship in Santa Fe
July 21 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Entrepreneurship is evolving. More than ever before we see businesses becoming a force for good and positive change. Social entrepreneurs are pushing the boundaries of how to solve social and environmental challenges through profit and purpose-centered ventures.
Committed to building a collaborative community of socially-responsible businesses, Santa Fe Innovates started a five-week Ideation Program geared to ignite social entrepreneurs to bring their idea to life. Over the last two years, Santa Fe Innovates has been collecting data and feedback from participants through this program. To better serve our unique community, Santa Fe Innovates has partnered with UNM Anderson School of Management and Creative Santa Fe to host community input sessions this July and August. Through the collected feedback, we hope to better understand how best to grow a thriving social entrepreneurship locally.
Below are some of the questions we will be discussing—
- What programs are needed to better support responsible entrepreneurs from idea to acceleration to scaling?
- What does mentoring look like to support our local social entrepreneurs?
- What support and investment resources would be beneficial?
- How do we embrace our culture while achieving economic diversity with new businesses for future generations?
- Imagine our entrepreneurial community three years from now. What is in place? What are the success attributes?
Join us as we explore the next phase of responsible entrepreneurship in Santa Fe and northern New Mexico. Bring your start-up spirit and desire for positive change to contribute to our sessions.
Light refreshments will be provided. Free and open to the public.
This event is sponsored by the City of Santa Fe Community and Economic Development Office.
