Entrepreneurial Solutions to Child Welfare Challenges


This inaugural conference, supported by the Annie E. Casey Foundation and Casey Family Programs, explored the application of business and entrepreneurial strategies within child welfare. Many topics had never been discussed before in the context of the child welfare system.

Participants confirmed the importance of multidisciplinary forums where industry leaders explore ways to solve problems and bring innovations to scale. A commitment to reconvene the following year was confirmed. The conference received overwhelming praise and 70% of participants reported that it exceeded expectations.
