The Time is Now: Doing Well by Doing Good is the name of the social entrepreneurship conference. Students and adults from Kimberton Waldorf School, Triskeles, and Westtown School are currently in the planning stages and working together on this event. Students at local public and private high schools and colleges, as well as a number of other Waldorf schools, will be invited to participate.

“We all know many young people who want to change their world for the better and who are ready to put their skills, passion and energies into new creative ventures. This is a great opportunity for youth to take part in something that teaches them and touches their hearts and gives them hope for the future,” Mark Birdsall, of Triskeles explained.

This will be a conference for those young people. They will have the chance to meet other young people and share their passions and interests, hear inspiring stories from successful social entrepreneurs and business entrepreneurs, and attend workshops and forums on many topics, including “Finding Your Angel – What Investors Look For;” “From Here To There – Getting From the Idea to Market;” “Show Me the Money – Financing a Social Enterprise” and others. National caliber speakers such as Jay Coen Gilbert, founder of B Lab and Zoe Seltzer of Good Capital will speak. Many successful young entrepreneurs will lead panels and forums.
