2013 Spring Conference

April 25 - 28 | Paradise Point | San Diego, CA

SVN's 2013 Spring Conference convened a diverse group of 300 innovative, influential leaders who joined us for a series of courageous conversations throughout the four day event. We left challenged, inspired and with a re-ignited passion to create sustainable prosperity for all. 

"That "conference" was the best one yet. From the setting to the food to the attendees to the sharing and music, that rocked. These "conferences" are anything but conferences. They are more of a spiritual retreat and reconnecting with my tribe."  

- Timothy Yee, Green Retirement Plans, Inc. 

"I love SVN. It's the one conference where I feel I am given more than I am giving."

- Cheryl Contee, Fissions Strategy 

"The new format was really interesting, and the opportunity to share with so many people really gave each person the ability to get to know a total stranger in a very meaningful way."  

 - Dr. Antonia Neubauer, Myths and Mountains, Inc. 

"Where on earth can you sing New England sea shanties with a Grammy winner, shake hands with a Wikipedia-worthy civil rights leader, mingle with the founding mothers and fathers of social enterprise, flex your intellect for new ways to solve the world’s biggest problems…. oh, and party ‘til dawn? That would be at Social Venture Network’s Spring Conference in San Diego."  Read more here...

- James Schaffer, Schaffer & Combs
