Remaking & Revitalizing the Economy Conference


A virtual convening for business leaders,
impact investors, policy makers, and more

December 1 – 4, 2020

Remaking & Revitalizing the Economy Conference kicks off the new alliance between American Sustainable Business Council (ASBC) and Social Venture Circle (SVC) — an alliance that combines the leverage of leading socially responsible business leaders, entrepreneurs, impact investors, policy makers and other thoughtful contributors to America’s recovery and resurgence. And not a minute too soon!

The pandemic has made our long-neglected problems too obvious to ignore. There’s a new opportunity to build an equitable, sustainable stakeholder economy that works for all. The conference will explore a range of strategies across issue lines as we chart a new path forward.
