SocEnt Breakfast #2: Intentionally Good
August 7, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am
We’re excited to host our second SocEnt Breakfast, this time with Joey Womack!
The GSIC SocEnt Breakfast is a forum and platform for idea sharing, resource exchanging and connecting among Atlanta’s social entrepreneurs, nonprofit and civic leaders, community advocates, grantmakers, and mission investors. It’s primarily about discussion, so show up to learn a bit about a local social enterprise and then be prepared to share your thoughts and feedback.
