Los Angeles Chapter Event:

February 25th to February 25th


The Grantmanship Center

350 South Bixel Street, Suite #110
Los Angeles, CA 90017


In February, SEA is very excited to welcome acclaimed entrepreneurship expert, speaker, and author Stephen Meade to give a seminar on "Starting A Social Enterprise".

He will be going through very practical steps on how to turn an idea into a working social enterprise, including tips on networking, building a team, and pitching your idea.  Stephen is a seasoned business leader who is a frequent participant/speaker/panelist at CGI (Clinton Global Initiative), Founder Institute, Opportunity Green, and more.  He currently serves as chairman and resident rainmaker at BigBamboo LLC, a holding company which incubates start-up companies from innovative idea to market-ready.  His roster of successful businesses includes the founding and selling of SiteVisions.com, a website and database development company sold in 2000, and Virtual Sellers.com started in 1996, which became an innovation for an ecommerce-based transaction processing system that proved to be an early precursor to PayPal.  He currently guides the future of companies including My WetRock, Inc. RONAStar, ComCom, OrionNation, and others.
