Impact Entrepreneur at the Transform Conference


  • Impact Hub San Francisco (map)

Impact Entrepreneur’s Founder and CEO Laurie Lane-Zucker will be giving a keynote talk at the inaugural Transform Conference in San Francisco on May 22nd.

The subject of the talk will be The Role of Philanthropy in Systemic Transformation or The New Philanthropy:

Philanthropy in the United States was not designed to transform systems, but rather to fill the potholes in the current system. Responding to the urgent call for a more transformative, proactive and entrepreneurial philanthropic sector, private foundations and individual philanthropists are reimagining the purpose, structure and practices of philanthropy so as to more effectively contribute to the building of an impact economy. This talk will draw on the findings and recommendations of a recent Impact Entrepreneur/Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors report and call to action for the philanthropy sector.

The TRANSFORM: Climate, Communities, Capital Gathering is the centerpiece of an always-on convening that includes labs, working groups, and editorial content. Transforming climate, communities, and capital to create a safer, regenerative, more just world is the context for a deep focus on HOW to accelerate these changes. Transformation requires a fundamentally different mindset and gameplan than sustainability. TRANSFORM equips systems entrepreneurs to move faster, with more confidence.
