The Gratitude Awards @SOCAP

For the second year, we will partner with The Gratitude Network to host The Gratitude Awards @SOCAP. This additional award opportunity brings unique recognition and resources to the winning social entrepreneurs in the categories of education, community development and environment/sustainability. Award recipients are provided meetings with influential business leaders, as well as ongoing mentorship and entrepreneur training in appreciation of their work and in support of their success.
