A day-long seminar in Columbia, SC for nonprofit executives, development directors and board members because it’s time you started operating more like a business and less like a charity.
Equipped with the knowledge that retiring baby boomers, changing approaches to funding and philanthropy, and a more crowded than ever nonprofit sector is creating a need for strategic thinking and bigger and bolder visions; Venture Carolina is partnering with 1000 Feathers and VentureSouth to help bridge the divide between nonprofts and entrepreneurship. During the event, nonprofit executives, development directors and board members will engage in dynamic conversation with industry leaders who will help our social service community think less like a charity and more like a business in an effort to expand resources and better meet the needs of the communities they serve.
Innovation Challenge. A select group of nonprofits will have the opportunity to present their profitable ideas to a panel of investors and funders, modeled after the popular show Shark Tank®. The application process will take place prior to the conference, VentureSouth will narrow the pool down to three candidates through an intense due diligence, and finalists will present their ideas during the conference on September 13. The winning proposal will receive a $5,000 award to fund the development and expansion of their effort.
