Pathways to Purpose - Startup for Good Interactive Workshop
This is NOT your typical panel, so if you think you can stroll in and just listen, don’t even think of registering!  Come prepared to WORK in a small group format and learn from those that have carved the social impact pathway at their companies.  Learn how to embed doing good into your company from the get-go.  Problem solve with experts in the field focused around 4 pathways - Time, Product, Treasure, & Funds.  No matter where you are in your company's development, there will be kernels of wisdom to take away!
Is this interactive workshop for you? If you answer yes to any or all of the questions below - join us!  
• Are you the founder or an employee at a start-up or a small/medium sized company that realizes the importance of giving back to the local and global community but you just don’t know how to get started at your workplace?
• Would you like to learn from other emerging companies how they’ve approached social impact and get answers to your questions right then and there?
• Are you looking to skyrocket your corporate social responsibility #CSR, #impact credentials and galvanize customer, employee, funder, and partner interest?
• Are you constantly thinking about how to competitively position your company in the global market AND at the same time do something good for the world around you?
You will work side-by-side with social impact industry leaders solving for your current pain points, including:

Jeremy Brown, Startups Give Back;

John Leonard, Optimizely;

Rebecca Nalder, Silicon Valley Community Foundation;

Lou Reda, Hands On Bay Area (HOBA);

Jake Speyer, Medallia;

Edward Wang, Tides Foundation
