Keynote Presentation — Building Regional Impact Economies

In a world of growing social inequities and severe ecological distress, the development of regional, place- based “impact economies” fueled by triple bottom line contextual thinking and social and environmental innovation will provide the most sensible and practical path toward creating a resilient and prosperous future for local communities as well as global humanity. 


In this keynote webinar presentation, Laurie Lane-Zucker, founder of the global Impact Entrepreneur Network and the Impact Entrepreneur Center for Social & Environmental Innovation will discuss the importance and role of “blended value,” social and environmental entrepreneurship and impact investing in the development of thriving regional, sustainable economies.
