Entrepreneurship and Social Change VC NYC panel March 4, 2010

by Fred Abramson on February 27, 2010 · 0 comments

On July 4, we celebrate the entrepreneurs who were our founding fathers who made a difference by bringing social change to America. Unlike July 4, there is nothing particularly unique about the date of March 4.  On that date back in 2006 final contact was attempted with Pioneer 10 by the Deep Space Network. Unfortunately, no response was received.

NYConvergance recently noted that the New York Tech scene has matured. One sign of its maturity is the bevy of tech events in the New York City area.

What could be better than making March 4, 2010 special by spending the evening celebrating the power of entrepreneurs to change the world.  According to the press release:

The event will feature a panel that brings together the nation’s most prominent advocates for both early stage investment and social enterprise.  Fred Wilson, founder of Union Square Ventures, is an advocate for early stage investment and the single most read blogger in the venture capital community.  Jacqueline Novogratz is the founder of the Acumen Fund, a global nonprofit venture philanthropy fund that hat uses entrepreneurial approaches to solve the problems of global poverty.  They are joined by Roger Ehrenberg, founder of IA Venture Strategies and one of the most active angel investors in New York and Jacob Gray, partner at Murex Investments. The panel will be moderated by Scott Edward Anderson, founder of the greenskeptic.com and a frequent commentator on the FOx Business Netowrk. This rare combination of finance and philanthropy leadership reflects GoodCompany Ventures’ unique mission to help social entrepreneurs develop scalable, for-profit businesses to address unmet social needs.
