What can I expect?

Each Summit workshop will be hosted by a panel of seasoned, purpose-driven business owners, policymakers, and/or nonprofit and public sector leaders. Sessions will focus on three key areas:

Operational—How to run a real purposeful business (with no greenwashing)
Aspirational—How to do good in business, stay in business for good, and help shape public policies that benefit all San Diegans
CommUNITY—How to engage with like-minded local people, businesses, and organizations to drive more meaningful change together

Why should I come?

The (Doing) Business For Good Summit offers a rare, centralized space to get to know 150+ values-aligned local businesses, learn how to run a sustainable business, and expand your own brand.

Plus, you’ll connect with dozens more engaged peers who care about shaping a San Diego that works better for everyone in all of our communities!
