Innovation Entrepreneurs Program

2017 Innovation Entrepreneurs Program

SVN's Innovation Entrepreneurs Program identifies and supports diverse, innovative, and high-impact business leaders.

SVN’s Innovation Entrepreneurs Program focuses on identifying women entrepreneurs, young entrepreneurs, and entrepreneurs of color who are leveraging business for the greater good.

Innovation Entrepreneurs are welcomed into the SVN community, a network of influential, mission-driven leaders who support one another professionally and personally. As Innovation Entrepreneurs, emerging leaders gain access to people, resources, and ideas to help scale their organizations and deepen their impact.

Meet SVN's 2015-2016 Innovation Entrepreneurs.

"SVN is the only community where I've found so many like-minded people, who have both the experience in building a viable business and who are committed to achieving social impact. That's what is unique about SVN—there are people who understand what you're trying to do and are genuinely interested in helping you."Frederick Hutson, CEO and Founder, Pigeonly

SVN's Innovation Entrepreneurs Program is part of The Bridge Initiative, SVN's long-term commitment to raising the profile of diverse entrepreneurs and bringing new insights to the mission-driven business movement.
