Rodney Foxworth is looking to learn from other social entrepreneurs and spread his message of opening opportunities to entrepreneurs from all walks of life.
Foxworth is one of the speakers at Technical.ly’s Rise conference, which will be held in Philadelphia Oct. 22-24.
“I’m really passionate about by securing innovative economies that are inclusive of social entrepreneurs of color,” Foxworth said. “So I want to make sure there’s positive support for everyone and that we really encourage a lot of support and participation for everyone that wants to get involved.”
“I’m really looking forward to gaining insight in terms of how different cities are building supports and ecosystems for social innovators in their towns,” Foxworth said.
Foxworth is also a community manager for BMe Community in Baltimore. In that role, he’s been assisting Baltimore’s ten 2014 winners of the group’s Leader Awards, which support the work of black activists.
In Philadelphia, Foxworth said, he plans to talk about “inclusive innovation economies.”
“I’ll be talking about social enterprise and social entrepreneurship,” he said, framing it through BMe’s work with social entrepreneurs of color.
Foxworth is set to speak at 11 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 24. For more information on the conference, including a full schedule, speaker list and tickets, visit the conference’s website.
