The Co-Chair of Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation Will Guide Entrepreneurs and Investors to Be Distinctive in Seeking Impact

April 11, 2024 - Robert Steven Kaplan has accepted the invitation to be the marquee keynote speaker at SuperCrowd24, next week’s two-day virtual conference for impact investors and social entrepreneurs, host Devin Thorpe announced.

The co-chair of Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation, a leader in venture philanthropy, former vice chair of Goldman Sachs, previous professor and associate dean at Harvard Business School and past president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas will address the need for investors and entrepreneurs to define their distinctive approach to maximize their impact.

“Impact, that is real positive impact, doesn’t just happen,” Kaplan asserts. “Those who attend the event will be not just equipped but inspired to make a difference that truly matters. I’m thrilled to be a part of guiding impact makers to achieve more.”

“Rob is an extraordinary individual I’ve had the privilege of knowing over the past decade,” Thorpe shared. “His insights are eagerly anticipated by the audience, who will undoubtedly be captivated and inspired by his words.”

SuperCrowd24 will be live-streamed over two full days, April 17 and 18. The sessions will be recorded and available to all registrants following the event to allow people to relive highlights and catch up on what they missed. Kaplan will be joined by nearly 100 other speakers, presenters and panelists, including experts in community building, regulated investment crowdfunding and social entrepreneurship.

The virtual event will also include two live pitch sessions with a total of ten impact-focused companies presenting. Each of the ten has an investment crowdfunding campaign live, so audience members can each consider investing, starting with as little as $100.
