As a society we are waking up to the need to drive change for the better, balancing purpose and profitability, making money and meaning.
Conquer for Good is an initiative of Will & Grail that promotes awareness, education and connectivity, through talks and interaction with leaders working to build an ecosystem of social innovation and purpose-driven business.
UPCOMING EVENTS: KANSAS CITY
Join us in November for a special series of events at Global Entrepreneurship Week Kansas City, exploring social entrepreneurship and innovation. Here are three events co-sponsored by Conquer for Good.

This panel discussion will bring past speakers from Will & Grail’s Conquer for Good event series together to share lessons from their social entrepreneurial journey and the challenges of balancing purpose and profit. While business models and impact areas are different, they all share the common thread of seeing a social need, answering the call and working to make an impact in the lives of others.

This presentation and interactive dialogue will explore how entrepreneurial innovation, enterprise scale and an egalitarian sense of good combine to create a force for change.
