Summit 15 goes to Denver!
The Social Enterprise Alliance (SEA) has announced that its 2015 annual Summit will be held in Denver next September 16-18.
Denver brings a lot to the table for the Social Enterprise Alliance,” said Kevin Lynch, President & CEO of SEA. “The combination of several universities with strong social enterprise programs, the city’s popularity with Millennials, and the fact that Denver is itself home to many strong social enterprises makes Denver the perfect location for the national conference.”
SEA’s Denver Chapter will serve as Host for Summit15. The Host Committe is led by Tamra Ryan, CEO of The Women’s Bean Project , Janine Vanderburg, President and CEO of JVA Consulting, and Catherine Henry, Executive Director of Work Options for Women. All three women run successful social enterprises.
Other important social enterprises calling Colorado home include AspenPointe, VSA Access Gallery, Blue Star Recyclers, SAME (So All May Eat) Café, ARC Thrift Stores and Hope Tank, among many others.
Lynch said Denver is the perfect city for Summit15, as the very things that attract Millennials to Denver — a vibrant downtown, a transportation infrastructure that makes it easy to get around without a car, and many socially conscious businesses–also make it attractive to Summit attendees including SEA members and others interested in developing or expanding social enterprises.
“We’re very excited about coming to Denver,” Lynch said. “I know that working with this vibrant SEA Chapter market, we will develop our most compelling Summit yet. Combine that with the natural draw of Denver and the Rocky Mountains and we expect record attendance.”
