Social Venturers is launching a series of Fireside Chats to discuss what makes ecosystem builders effective. Every two weeks from September 10th until December 3rd, they are hosting peer-to-peer knowledge sharing sessions and you are invited!

#4 Live the Values (October 22nd 2020, noon & 2. p.m. EST)

Effective ecosystem builders don’t lead by decree. Instead, they lead from behind by convening; empowering others; being thoughtful listeners and connectors; and mentoring and inspiring (and sometimes coaxing) others to help each other and engage. In our 4th Fireside Chat, we will explore what values drive your community and how you are able to lead others by living those values.

Join Social Venturers on October 22nd, 2020, at noon and 2. Pm EST for a one-hour Fireside Chat about Ecosystem Building principle #4: Live the Values

Format: Fireside Chats

Fireside Chats are peer-to-peer knowledge sharing sessions with entrepreneurial ecosystem builders passionate about leveraging entrepreneurship in their communities as a force for good. We respect each other’s views, we speak from our own experience and we are comfortable saying “I don’t know!”

Rather than best practices, we are hoping to elicit:

  • Stories from the field with a focus on lessons learned
  • Proven practices: What has worked for you, what hasn’t? What will you try next?
  • Tools and resources: Which tools do you rely on to do your work well? Which resources do you confidently recommend to your peers?
  • Questions: What do YOU want to know more about? Which questions are worth diving deeper into?





Each Fireside Chat will become a blogpost in Social Venturers LEARN section with a focus on stories from the field, proven practices, tools & resources, and remaining questions.
