Prior to HTHH, the Social Good Summit will take place at the WID from 9:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

"Entrepreneurship at its best incorporates the business of improving the world we live in -- caring, sharing, building community, and unleashing new creative economies. Join us for a daylong summit to collectively redefine entrepreneurship in terms that reconsider the value of social good in all the work that we do. Through a moderated panel discussion, participant engagement activities, and networking opportunities, we will, together, build a larger kind of entrepreneurship worthy of Wisconsin – one where prosperity benefits everyone, without exception. The Social Good Summit is a new event organized by the founders of Madison Nonprofit Day, ESUCEO Inc., Rabble, Horizon Coworking, Mutual Aid Network, and Dane County TimeBank, in association with The Forward Festival, the UW-Madison Center for the Humanities, and Madison-area Urban Ministry (MUM)."
