On Sunday, October 20th, COCAP, in partnership with BALLE and Impact Hub Oakland, kicks off its 6th annual event with a full-day conference. This year’s conference will bring together over 200 local and national innovative cross-sector professionals to engage in conversation and highlight community wealth building innovations that are working toward leveling the playing field.

The theme this year is Nourishing Community Wealth. We will examine a broad range of models and innovations for investment, ownership, and support of local businesses and entrepreneurship that centers equity and prioritizes the local community.

In addition to our full-day conference, this year we are thrilled to partner with local institutions and neighbors to offer interactive workshops aligned with our theme of Nourishing Community Wealth in Oakland and San Francisco.

Components

Main Stage Panel Discussions

This year’s conference begins with inspiring stories from the field. We will hear from leaders who are expanding the concept of investments and working towards the transference of ownership and power in their communities. These discussions will lift up what’s working, and lessons learned from initiatives that are being implemented across the country.  

Solutions Exchange (SOLx)

For a next-level exchange of learning, we’re offering an exciting opportunity to be part of our program: the Solutions Exchange (SOLx). SOLx, launched at the BALLE Shift Capital Summit, will feature 10-20 initiatives that reflect critical work already underway in various communities, while engaging the significant wisdom of COCAP participants. In this small group format, presenters will share early wins and receive input on how to improve existing efforts to move the work forward.

Deep Dive Workshops

After a full day of learning about strategies to build community wealth from the main stage and SOLx circles, we will spend the next two days in workshops that deliver a deeper examination of what it takes to nourish community wealth. These interactive sessions will facilitate applied learning and focus on adaptable models as we consider what can be advanced collectively and in our respective communities.

COCAP Marketplace

The COCAP Marketplace is an opportunity to connect community wealth builders and community wealth holders. Engage further with our presenters and learn about how more organizations are supporting the transition from an extractive economy to a regenerative economy. Community members and funders alike will find opportunities for values-aligned investments.

Spark Presentations

This high-energy session will highlight field leaders sharing their most passionate and creative inclusive economy work, in five minutes and 20 slides.
