From climate change and social justice to affordable housing and healthcare, today’s pressing challenges, in many ways, are a result of yesterday’s failed “solutions.” Catalyzing positive change in our world will require a new approach to problem solving that embraces innovative thinking, creative cross sector collaborations, and informed policies.
Join us for a discussion with a panel of inspiring and impact driven non-profit and startup founders, funders and policy experts to explore new approaches to driving change. We’ll examine various business models, talk about the importance of financial sustainability and the role of public policy, and touch on how outcomes can be defined and measured to understand true impact and return on investment.
