VillageReach’s Craig Nakagawa Featured Speaker at SoCap2009

On Wednesday, September 2nd, our CFO and Social Business Director, Craig Nakagawa, will present VidaGas: Anatomy of a Social Investment, a presentation featuring VillageReach’s social business VidaGas.  At their first annual conference last year, SoCap sold out before the conference even began.  This conference is a continuing testament to the excitement surrounding everything social entrepreneur-related.  Craig’s presentation will cover VillageReach’s creation of VidaGas as a social enterprise designed to support the health system in northern Mozambique and the development and expansion of the business model.  VidaGas has evolved from a small distributor focused on supplying propane to health centers to become the largest propane distributor in Northern Mozambique.  In conjunction with the conference, we are also highlighting the Harvard Business School case study on VillageReach which explores some of the successes and challenges of VidaGas.  The case study was published in the spring and will be used in Harvard classrooms beginning this fall.
