BENEFITS OF ACCELERATION for NONPROFITS
Set-aside time. THRIVE: An accelerator for social good, is an intentional space and time for a team of board and staff to work on a specific organizational challenge in order to help accelerate their impact and move the mission forward.
Curated content and exercises. Each session incorporates content and exercises to help teams address a specific challenge within their organization. Sessions contain expertise from nonprofit acceration, and include concept introduction, breakout sessions, follow up assignments, and regrouping to share progress and network.
Team-driven, mentor-guided group work. Teams will have a group of mentors of various skills available to them each week to offer an outside perspective and function as a guide and partner in working through each session’s content and exercises and may offer useful connections.
Cross-sector connections. By bringing a wide variety of groups into one space, each group benefits from natural collisions and collaborations that emerge by interacting with other teams.
