Description:

What actually is social entrepreneurship, and why does it matter? Simply put, it’s when entrepreneurs start a business or venture with hopes of making a positive impact in their communities. Earlier this year, Alley and Verizon teamed up to admit 10 startups to the Tech For Good accelerator, a hands on digital program designed to help social entrepreneurs improve their products, offerings, and technologies. Here at Alley, we believe in the power of uniting entrepreneurs with enterprises to create meaningful change. Companies like Verizon make that possible through their commitment to supporting impact-driven startups as they scale and set out to make a difference. Corporations are ready to support social entrepreneurs and impact-driven startups, and our panelists will show you exactly how that relationship can look. In this panel, we’ll hear from members of the Tech For Good 2020 cohort to learn about their experience in the accelerator program, and from the team at Verizon about the importance of mentorship, and fostering relationships with the startup community
