Next week, from April 25 through 26, Brown will host this year’s SEEED Summit. SEEED (Social Enterprise Economic Ecosystem Development) is an conference that aims to discuss what is needed to build an effective social enterprise ecosystem that can drive economic development. One of its main goals is to promote a business model that is not only successful economically, but also focuses on sustainable profit that accelerates social change.
Over 500 people are gathering on Brown’s campus for a two-day summit to discuss and formulate strategies. Some speakers include investors, policy makers, academics, and business leaders. The summit also boasts a very accomplished group of keynote addresses. One of them will be delivered by Ira C. Magaziner, a Brown graduate and Rhodes Scholar. He is the Chief Executive Officer and Vice Chairman of the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI). He is also the Chairman of the Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI) and is on the board of the Clinton Hunter Development Initiative. You definitely will not want to miss this opportunity to hear new ideas and policies about social change that actually will be implemented.

Registration for the conference is available online (Brown students get a discounted rate of just $45!). Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear a wide range of ideas and policies about the future of business in America.
