I thought I would share some awesome upcoming events in the design and social entrepreneur community.
Tonight, April 10 How to Run a World-Class Organization: One Day at a Time (4/10)
No great nonprofit or social enterprise was ever built on a great idea alone. In fact, if you run out of money, your passion alone will not keep you in business. There’s a lot that needs to be aligned for success, but one thing that’s for sure is that your organization or company’s ultimate success has everything to do with day-to-day operations which is often the job of a Chief Operating Officer.

Saturday, April 14 Digital Fundraising: New Ways to Raise Money Online
Join Social Innovators Collective for a full-day summit of workshops and networking at General Assembly, bringing together founders, industry leaders, and business strategists, where we will discover innovative and efficient ways to raise money for your venture or organization. The dialogue will include overviews of fundraising strategies for early-stage teams, honest stories from entrepreneurs on successful (and less than successful) capital raises, when/how/why to bootstrap, and more. Lunch & drinks will be served.
Monday, April 16 Design thinking techniques for non-profits & entrepreneurs
Design thinking can be used to solve real world problems and is a technique that can be used by design or non-designer to approaches every day challenges.
Friday, April 20 Reach your target market: uncovering the Influencers.
No matter where you are in the development process of your organization, idea, start-up and/or non-profits, identifying new opportunities to engage with your community/client can be a challenge. This workshop will provide a hands-on approach to the practice and how to apply the principals of ‘design thinking’ to uncover the influencers and values of your community/client.
