Mission Statement

Our mission is to take a purposeful, inclusive, and innovative approach for convening leaders from all sectors, ages, and stages to benefit social enterprises, the communities they impact, and the social enterprise movement at large.

Description

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 SEWF was later celebrated in Johannesburg (2011), Rio de Janeiro (2012), and Canada (October, 2013).

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.

We aim our efforts towards 3 focus areas for collaboration:

  1. Cross-sector: bridging sectorial and technological divides,
  2. Inter-generational: closing gaps between experienced and emerging practitioners,
  3. With local and state governments: mutually beneficial relationships between social enterprises and governments.
