Plan a Sustainable Social Program

How can nonprofits build high-impact programs and sustainable organizations? This session will help you think like a social entrepreneur. We'll translate important business principles - including lean start-up, value proposition, and branding - into a nonprofit context. You'll learn to break down a planning process into easy-to-follow steps for you to right-size a business plan and a pitch for your needs.
