What does sustainability mean? How can nonprofits build high-impact programs and sustainable organizations? This session will 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 – including a pitch – for your needs. This is a great session for nonprofits who are starting a new initiative or working to build your sustainability.
