The Soul of the Next Economy Forum is where business, the non-profit sector, government, and educational institutions converge to change the way we do business and impact society. Fueled through innovation, collaboration, and corporate social responsibility we come together to:


learn about local and global social and development challenges


connect with peers, industry experts and other sectors addressing these challenges


engage in sustainable business oriented solutions to these challenges

"Today more than ever, the best and the brightest care more about why you do what you do and how you go about the ‘doing’ than what you do. The Forum speaks directly to this important emerging theme in the marketplace – a theme that I predict is not going anywhere!"

"The concept of Corporate Sustainability has come a long way from 'feel good' community projects to more complex strategic planning for a company. CSR has become the corporate DNA; 'It’s just how we do business'."
