MissionHUB Launches SOCAP 365 and SOCAPTV - New Platforms for Social Innovators to Access SOCAP Content Year-Round

Announces SOCAP 365 Programming at Its Campuses and SOCAPTV Content Online - Offering Greater Resources for Social Entrepreneurs and Impact Investors

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 9, 2015) -  MissionHUB, a network of Impact Hub coworking campuses in San Francisco, Berkeley, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C., and the Social Capital Markets Conference (SOCAP) for impact investing, is launching SOCAP 365 and SOCAPTV, NEW thought-leadership platforms with year-round, SOCAP-branded content.

"As we produce world-class thought leadership each year at the SOCAP conference, we are excited to offer this curated content year-round, beyond our conference audience," says Eryc Branham, CEO of MissionHUB. "The expansion of SOCAP-branded content allows us to expand our conversations from SOCAP and continue them 365 days a year at our campuses and on the web."

SOCAP 365 presents event and educational programming at MissionHUB campuses, each focusing on convening around specific SOCAP themes:

  • "Sustainable Cities" at Impact Hub San Francisco
  • "Sustainable Food / Ag" at Impact Hub Berkeley
  • "Financial Inclusion" at Impact Hub NYC
  • "Impact Investing" at Impact Hub Philadelphia
  • "Civic Innovation" at Impact Hub DC

SOCAPTV is the digital, public-facing platform for SOCAP, capturing live coverage of SOCAP15 talks recorded for future viewing and sharing online. In addition to main stage content that will be livestreamed and archived online, the new SOCAPTV format will share inspiring stories from early pioneers, as well as prominent new players, beyond the physical conference through a series of ten to twelve minute talks. SOCAPTV will span a variety of topics from creative placemaking to the ebola epidemic to designing our new economy -- the common thread is impact.

"Over the last few years, we have had consistently high demand to expand SOCAP's presence," says Lindsay Smalling, Director of Programming at SOCAP. "With the launch of SOCAP 365 and SOCAPTV, we anticipate the ideas and collaborations emerging from SOCAP will have a greater impact because more people will engage year-round, from anywhere. Now, we can better support continued opportunities for engagement beyond the annual conference and spark valuable connections between practitioners throughout the year."

In support of the SOCAP 365 launch, Impact Hub NYC announces its new speaker series in partnership with the Bard MBA in Sustainability program's Sustainable Business Series (SBS), bringing together leaders in sustainable business to foster conversation around cutting-edge ideas. Aligned with the SOCAP theme, "Financial Inclusion," events include:
