If you are a social impact entrepreneur you need to know about The Social Innovation Forum in Boston. SIF has programs for both non-profit and for-profit social impact organizations.
The Social Innovation Forum (SIF) plays a critical role in the social impact community by educating, engaging, and connecting resource providers (funders, investors, and volunteers) and on-the-ground leaders of nonprofit organizations and social impact businesses. Our programs and services provide a unique combination of capacity building and network building as we actively connect supporters and practitioners to build productive relationships focused on growing social impact.
This spring I had the privilege of helping SIF as a presentation advisor and as a mentor for the new bootcamp program that prepared organizations to develop their presentations for an SIF investor conference.
SIF is an amazing organization. A two-year old spinout from Root Cause, the people, processes and purpose of SIF are road tested and top-notch. The companies they serve are doing great work. I was privileged to work with both Budget Buddies, which helps low-income women become more economically self-sufficient and transform their lives by teaching them core money-management skills and Change Is Simple, which educates children on the connections between, environmental, community and human health.
I hope to have the opportunity to work the great staff and wonderful companies of SIF this fall. That’s my highest recommendation.
