2nd Annual Stanford Purposeful Entrepreneurship Convening

Emergence co-hosts an annual convening each year bringing together Stanford faculty and staff from different programs around the topics of purposeful entrepreneurship.  The goal of the convening is to create awareness of the work of different centers and programs at Stanford on purpose-driven entrepreneurship, celebrate and inspire our community, and to facilitate conversations that can lead to new collaborations and ideas.

In the long run, this annual convening aims to strengthen our network and to catalyze the emergence of new innovations and ventures driven by purpose and a sense of urgency in addressing the most pressing challenges humanity is facing. Together, we intend to create more opportunities for such an ecosystem to grow from the fringes into the mainstream of technology entrepreneurship.

Stanford’s 2nd Convening on Purposeful Entrepreneurship took place on June 16th, 2022. The convening was hosted by Emergence, sponsored by EST Hub, and  designed in collaboration with the STVP and GSB CES teams. Invitees included faculty and staff from:
