100+ social enterprises are right here in Central Ohio.

A collaborative, close-knit community has made Columbus the destination that it is today. The capital city has always shown enthusiastic and open-minded support for its entrepreneurs. That’s a big reason why we continue to see exciting social enterprises develop across diverse communities.

We founded the annual Festival for Good (originally called the SEA Change Festival) in 2016 to uplift these inspiring businesses that have made social change a key part of their identity and mission. All year long we work to curate an exciting marketplace for you—in-person, virtually or a combination of both.

Together we can
make a difference.
