MakeImpactNYC Event Brings Together all of NYC for Good
New York, December 4, 2013 /3BL Media / - Announcing MakeImpactNYC 2014: Do Good in Your ‘Hood the first-of-its kind “Five boroughs, one city, endless impact” event bringing together entrepreneurs and innovators from every part of New York City who are building a new social impact economy: New Yorkers who are improving the lives of their neighbors and communities through entrepreneurial solutions.
On one special day, January 16, 2014, Good-B.com, NYC’s leading online news and new media platform supporting entrepreneurs for social good joins Fordham University’s Center for Humanistic Management and the city’s leading social impact entrepreneurs, innovators, incubators, coworking spaces, business leaders, educators, and social good-doers at the Gabelli School of Business near Lincoln Center to celebrate what makes New York great: innovation, community, entrepreneurship — and a commitment to make the city we call home a better place for everyone in it.
This is not your typical social good conference! MakeImpactNYC features social enterprises focused on solving critical local problems including job creation, access to healthcare, minority opportunities, youth education, economic and community development, affordable housing, and arts and cultural support. The conference celebrates NYC’s social entrepreneurship achievements, explores the city’s pressing issues, and builds community and collaboration across all 5 boroughs. The day is capped off with the first ever “Social Good Battle of the Boros” entrepreneur pitch competition, a “friendly” New York style “battle” where borough changemakers vie for the “Best of the Boros Social Impact Crown.” It’s all in good fun and for a good cause: celebrating what makes New York the new capital for social innovation.
Participants include Etsy, CBS/EcoMedia, Girls Who Code, Centre for Social Innovation, Pratt Institute, Fordham B-School, Good Business NY, Return on Change, ThatMattersLive, Locavesting, HelpChipIn, InfluencerCon, Silicon Harlem, Fundrise, Be Social Change, Staten Island Makers Space, The Kitchen, incubators, impact investors, and local business leaders showcasing the NYC social entrepreneurship ecosystem across all five boroughs. After all, if we can make impact here, we can make impact anywhere!
