The 5th Annual Social Enterprise Symposium: “Here and Now”
Friday, March 1, 2013, 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Stamp Student Union, University of Maryland
The 5th annual Social Enterprise Symposium, created and hosted by the Center for Social Value Creation, will take place MARCH 1, 2013 at the Stamp Student Union. Unlike any other event on campus, the Symposium explores the role of business in creating economic prosperity and lasting social and environmental change. From sustainability to social entrepreneurship, the Social Enterprise Symposium helps connect students with thoughts leaders who are using the tools of business to change the world. The Symposium features two keynotes, a series of breakout sessions and workshops, our annual No Limits Social Impact Pitch Competition, and an evening networking reception.
This year’s theme, “Here and now”, is a call to action in becoming more informed, motivated, and active participants in this crazy thing we call life. With today’s complex challenges, we don’t have the luxury to sit and wait for solutions. Problem solving begins with each of us, whether as individuals or organizations, and it must begin now.
