Social Venture Institute Hollyhock

With Hollyhock Leadership Institute

September 11 - 15, 2019

Social Venture Institute offers the mission-based entrepreneur an opportunity to share challenges, successes, and experiences with peers in an atmosphere of trust and goodwill.

“A profoundly life changing event. Hollyhock SVI raises your expectations of what success can be and connects you to those who can make your goals reality.” – Patrice Mousseau, Satya Organic Skin Care

Each attendee brings a commitment of social change to their enterprise, whether a for-profit business or a non-profit organization. Over 21 years, SVI has provided over 2,500 entrepreneurs the opportunity to strengthen their business skills, network with other social enterprise leaders, and rejuvenate their passion and vision.

“SVI created the space for us, as directors of a large project, to attend to our values through our work, both at a high-vision level, and also through pragmatic issues, like developing a cash flow that could support these intentions. At SVI you will definitely develop the relationships you need to do the work you want to do. The people are in the room.” – Duane Elverum, City Studio

Intentionally Designed to Foster Growth

The format of SVI is highly interactive and experiential. Participants present their business problems to a panel of experienced business leaders and fellow participants. In return, they receive advice, tools, and resources to strengthen and grow their enterprise in a socially conscious way. Based on evaluations and testimonials, participants uniformly reflect that SVI is one of the best investments they’ve made in growing their social purpose enterprises.

Supportive and Experienced Network

The combination of high quality mentors, a confidential and supportive environment, and a practical problem-solving format enables participants to acquire a rich portfolio of skills, a plan to grow their social purpose organization, and a network of contacts to support their enterprise. SVI participants are first or second-stage entrepreneurs who face challenges in growing an enterprise while maintaining a social mission.

Unique Format for Out of the Box Results

Take advantage of this opportunity to fine tune business strategies, learn best practices for solving problems and build long lasting relationships with business peers and mentors. Get direct feedback for your current business challenges from a faculty of successful socially responsible enterprise leaders. Hear inspiring “True Confessions” – personal stories from experienced entrepreneurs and their struggles to reach success combining social mission with business.


  • Share innovative ideas to help improve the way you manage, promote and finance your businesses and projects;
  • Build a stronger sense of community, cooperation, mission and effectiveness; and
  • Experience the deep rejuvenation integral to the learning journey.

This program is for CEOs, Executive Directors, Founders, key staff, social entrepreneurs, and emerging leaders of all kinds.

“SVI for me was full of surprises. While I anticipated the learning and programming, what I found remarkable was being surrounding by so many truly authentic individuals.” – Stephanie Vellins, Harris & Company
