Social Impact Labs

The Social Impact Labs are a unique opportunity for selected speakers to present their new idea in the format of a 5-minute pitch. All of the presentations are ideas that are being developed, meaning that the ideas are in the brainstorming, early development, or early implementation stage. Following each presenter’s 5-minute pitch, there is a 15-minute period for discussion and coaching with two expert speakers, questions, answers, and feedback from the audience. The conference audience has the opportunity to hear about cutting-edge ideas from the pitch presenters, while also learning from the guidance, advice, and expertise of the expert panelists. Each Social Impact Lab consists of two expert panelists and four social impact pitch presenters.
