Sandbox Stories, Creating a Space for Social Good

Sunday, March 15
9:30AM - 10:30AM

Austin City Hall
Council Chambers
301 W 2nd St

In order to create a social impact investment eco-system a community needs to have a physical place to gather. This place serves as a test ground to incubate and validate new ideas. While not all of the ideas that are birthed have the same success, this space allows for social innovation to flourish where otherwise it may only happen in a silo or not at all. This will all be shared in the form of an open dialogue where we will hear from the trailblazers in this space who have helped create and launch these spaces globally and are helping social enterprises become successful. This discussion will cover what are the steps that need to be taken to launch a space like this in your city? How do you create a structure and validate the market?
