Community Breakfast with Mastercard
How can startups and corporates create greater social and business impact through positive action?
While diverting efforts away from traditional measures of success in favor of social impact could lead a company off track, it doesn’t have to. For this week's Community Breakfast, our partners Mastercard will be taking the stage, sharing with us valuable insights into their work in environmental, social, and governance (ESGs), along with a focused networking session and startup pitches.
No ticket needed — just bring your member card.
Our Community Breakfast is a bi-weekly opportunity to start your day on the right note with coffee and tasty breakfast treats, get to know each other better, and pause to reconnect if you’re already hard at work. Sometimes, we’ll have a cheeky icebreaker game, sometimes we will have a community-led discussion around a specific topic, and sometimes we will have other special themes to help you get excited about the day ahead.
Check our announcements on Slack for the latest Community Breakfast agenda.
