During Entrepreneurship Week at Stanford, there's going to be a really interesting panel discussion on how to get your social venture funded. It happens on Sunday, Feb 24, as part of Entrepreneurship Week at Stanford. Get the details at

Kriss Deiglmeier, Executive Director of the Center for Social Innovation, Stanford Graduate School of Business, will moderate.

Panelists include two leading funders of social entrepreneurs and two of their grantees:

  • Jenny Shilling Stein, Executive Director of the Draper Richards Foundation

  • Amy Clark, Ashoka, Global Fellows Program Leader

The event is open to all, with no registration required although you should plan to arrive early. I suspect it's going to be standing room only.
