SVN Hall of Fame Honorees

In 1987, the founders of Social Venture Network (SVN) had a vision for a better business model – one that would simultaneously benefit investors, employees, local communities and the planet. SVN became the premiere force for cultivating entrepreneurs dedicated to “profit with a purpose.” Upon the 25th Anniversary of its founding, SVN brought together values-driven business leaders and impact investors for the Social Venture Network Hall of Fame Celebration. Proceeds from the event benefitted SVN's Bridge Initiative, an effort to expand and diversify the socially responsible business movement by supporting entrepreneurs of color, young business leaders and women entrepreneurs.
