With Hollyhock Leadership Institute
October 13 - 16, 2020
“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
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.
Each attendee brings a commitment of social change to their enterprise, whether a for-profit business or a non-profit organization. Over 25 years, SVI has provided more than 3,000 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.
