First Movers Summit 2012: Building Connections, Amplifying Impact

The Aspen Institute Business and Society Program hosted the first ever First Movers Summit in Aspen, CO on October 5-7, 2012. This weekend event brought together First Mover Fellows and other invited experts in the field of social intrapreneurship.

Social intrapreneurship is growing in importance as expectations increase for companies to create long-term value for all of their stakeholders and to work efficiently and effectively across sectors.

In weekend workshops, Fellows and invited guests shared knowledge about how social intrapreneurs are changing the game in business and developed approaches for amplifying their impact.
