The free-enterprise system is a cornerstone of conservative and libertarian thought. We recognize the free market as a force for good in our lives and in improving the lives of millions around the world. Yet, it is easy to look around our world today and see instances of the market leaving people behind and ways in which businesses fail to be a force for social good. What is the role of capitalism in our society today? How can we create a world where business facilitates creative cooperation that elevates all people?
Join the San Francisco chapter of America’s Future Foundation for an evening of networking and a discussion with Alexander McCobin, CEO of Conscious Capitalism and Katie Biber, General Counsel at Thumbtack on the role of free-enterprise in our society today, and how business can create a better world.
6:30 Networking begins
8:00-9:00 Networking and socializing
There is a $10 entrance fee. Wine, beer and snacks will also be provided
