SOCAP is the world’s premier impact investment and social entrepreneurship conference, dedicated to increasing the flow of capital toward social good. Indian Country is often unknown or overlooked as a social investment opportunity.

Little Fawn Boland, partner of Ceiba Legal; Imogen Rose-Smith, investment fellow at University of California Office of Chief Investment Officer, and I submitted the interactive session idea with the goal of increasing capital to Indian Country. Little Fawn is a member of our Travois New Markets advisory board, and Imogen and I serve together on the Investors & Indigenous Peoples Working Group (IIPWG), working to advance the “Corporate and Investor Support for Indian Country” priority.
The annual SOCAP conference, SOCAP18, will be held Oct. 23-26 in San Francisco. We hope to be part of it to help promote this important investment opportunity. Thanks in advance for your support!
