Non-Profits:  Turning Idealism into Impact

Do you have an idea that you think would make a real contribution to the world? Or a passion to build an organization that solves a pressing problem? If you’ve ever toyed with the notion of starting a non-profit or a social impact organization, come to this workshop for practical advice about how to turn your idealism into impact. We’ll discuss critical success factors, including building a strong team, choosing a board that can help you, and developing a sustainable business model. We’ll also discuss cautions and pitfalls to avoid, and offer suggestions for resources to help. Finally, we’ll briefly cover some of the newer options for setting up an organization whose intent is social benefit.

This free workshop is co-sponsored by the Boston Chapter of SCORE and the Venture Cafe, and presented by SCORE Mentor Bill Hulsey.

Bill is a SCORE mentor and attorney with extensive experience managing the legal and business affairs of complex, mission driven organizations. He has particular expertise in many issues affecting non-profits, including governance, labor and employment, federally funded research, risk management and commercialization of intellectual property.
