Join us for a lively exchange with RSA Fellows and entrepreneurs leading initiatives to drive positive impact within their communities.

About this event

Do you have a socially beneficial enterprise or initiative, or would you like to offer your skills and feedback to support social impact?

Our flagship RSA Engage series is going global and joining forces with CAMentrepeneurs to showcase positive impact entrepreneurship, seek support and feedback.

During the first part of the session we'll hear up to 6 short project pitches from CAMentrepreneurs and RSA Fellows who are seeking to tackle social, environmental or economic challenges. The pitches will be followed by a chance to join smaller breakout groups to offer your skills and expertise to support these initiatives. After the pitches and breakout sessions, there will be an opportunity to network more informally with other participants.

This event will feature presentations from social entrepreneurs selected by Richard Lucas FRSA, Founder CAMentrepreneurs, and by RSA Fellows who either nominate themselves, or are selected by the RSA Global team.
