NonTraditional NonProfit: A Primer for Launch

Receding funds, difficult to scale services, and the “do good discount” have put the nonprofit model in America under pressure. This panel of business and nonprofit leaders will discuss how to embrace lean business, fail fast, and design thinking principles to better compete and deliver value in the modern world. It will share best practices from the food, tech, public radio and fitness sectors as a primer for evaluating opportunities and launching a NonTraditional NonProfit.
