SOCAP Day 1 ends with a fantastic party filled with food, music by local Oakland group, James and Evander, fun,  and celebrating the launch of Markets for Good. Markets for Good is a campaign designed to understand how we – as social sector
practitioners, funders, and supporting organizations – can use information to make a difference, drive outcomes, and change lives. Immediately following the keynote by Jeff Raikes, CEO of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, learn more about this campaign with a Launch Party from 7-9pm in the Festival Pavilion. Markets for Good is supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and the financial firm Liquidnet.


Wednesday / October 3rd
6:30 at Fort Mason, Festival Pavilion

The HUB has taken over Fort Mason’s Festival Pavilion to demonstrate the way we bring ideas to life 365 days a year. Our partners—Herman Miller (a leading space designer) and Intersection for the Arts (a 50-year-old arts and community builder)—worked with us to make a place that enriches our participants experience. Combining enterprise, art, community, and place, communities are enlivened through rich experiences that combine interdisciplinary thinking. Join us for a party that represents the best of this experience of the HUB on Wednesday, October 3rd, when we open up the reception to our 1000 attendees + the local HUB Bay Area community. Featuring great music by Dam Funk, Berlin-style ping pong (a San Francisco phenomenon), and experiential art by Intersection for the Arts, you don’t want to miss it!
