Participation Guidelines

This is the first time we are holding the SOCAP flagship conference in a virtual setting. We will host 100 sessions and interactive planning for 10,000 attendees. We are not yet sure how many attendees will join per session. Please indicate if your session is meant for a smaller audience between 40-70 people. We anticipate the average session attendance will be between 70-150 people.

SOCAP brings together entrepreneurs, funders, thinkers, and doers to grow the social capital markets. One of our core principals is there is much inspiration and experience in the crowd so we invite our community to help us plan great sessions and conversations. Participation in SOCAP Open only works if we follow a few guidelines both during the event and here on this platform:

Respect diversity. Differences make this ecosystem diverse and inclusive. Through SOCAP Open we ask that critique is handled in a constructive way, helping to push ideas forward. We will flag any concerns, and reserve the right to ask community members to take it elsewhere if their critique proves less than respectful.

Keep it on topic. We welcome a wide variety of submissions, but please make sure the topic fits under the umbrella of social innovation.

SOCAP is a conversation among equals. Because this is a community conversation, speakers pay to participate in the convening just like those who come to listen and connect. If your session idea is selected, we offer you one free ticket as the session organizer. Your other speakers or panelists will receive a speaker discount code to purchase tickets for the whole event, or they may attend for just the session they are speaking on.
