Entrepreneurship for Impact and Positive Change: Case Studies and Conversations

Tuesday, November 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm • Organized By HOPE International
1722 E 17th Terrace, Kansas City, MO 64108


With the rise of impact investing, the formation of the UN sustainable development goals, and in thriving start-up communities across the US, we see a rising awareness of the power of business to create positive change in our world. In this interactive workshop, you’ll hear examples of entrepreneurs in both the US and developing world who have found ways to harness their role in a business (financer, owner, employee) to create positive impact. You’ll also be challenged to consider what next steps you might take to positively contribute to the impact your business is having in the world.
