Philanthropic Innovation for Greater Impact - Extended 90-Minute Workshop!
Nonprofits throughout the region struggle to secure enough funding, attract and retain great talent, and scale up their impact. Doing the same things they've done for years (or decades) isn't working anymore. Organizations that innovate will create the largest impact in the world, attract the best people who will love their jobs, and secure the most funding. In this 90-minute workshop you'll be introduced to the state-of-the-art systems for innovation used by Silicon Valley, the National Science Foundation, National Institutes for Health, the effective altruism movement, and many others.
