SPECTRUM 2020

LET’S JOIN FORCES

The next innovation boom isn’t coming from New York or San Francisco — it’s radiating from cities like Atlanta, New Orleans, and Memphis, with a new wave of talented pioneers who are building game-changing socially conscious solutions across industries. The fastest-growing population of American entrepreneurs — people of color — are leading the charge, responding to the real needs of their communities and creating conscious companies that have a purpose beyond profit.

But while brilliant minds are plentiful, investment in and support for leaders of color is not. The racial equity gap persists, preventing great startups from scaling and thriving. Innovators and founders of color are systematically under-recognized and under-resourced. Now is the time for change.

At SOCAP and Conscious Company Media, we know the urgent need for access, inclusion, and impact. For over a decade, we’ve surfaced new solutions by gathering diverse perspectives to address the unique obstacles that we all face when markets fail. Together, we strive to better understand the challenges at hand and implement strategies to overcome those barriers. Let’s explore the full range of possibilities for creating equity and shared prosperity.

This June in Atlanta, GA, we’ll host SPECTRUM — a two-day immersive convening to bring together business leaders, entrepreneurs, thought leaders, cross-sector practitioners, and investors to identify ways to build an impact economy based on equity, diversity, and inclusion where everyone can thrive.

Join us in Atlanta, GA on June 9-11, 2020 to unlock the full range of possibilities.
