How do we get the needed resources and talent for solving our most challenging problems? Government, traditional business, and charities can't do it all. This crossroads is an opportunity. Meet pioneers Tamzin Ractliffe, founder of SASIX, and Alex Counts, President of Grameen Foundation, and Don Shaffer, President and CEO of RSF Social Finance as they convene in Portland, Oregon to join 30+ experts from around the world. What they're proposing will change the world.
The one day conference is followed by a day of hands-on workshops and strategic action roundtables designed to help participants apply the ideas offered at the conference to their own organizations and to create real tools and strategies as an outcome.
ReVV 2010 will:
- Inform and inspire those interested in financing change through social investing
- Provide information on how to create new kinds of change organizations, from nonprofits to social businesses
- Create new tools, formats, structures for social action
- Build the field for social innovation and sustainable communities
