Feb 22 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

SocialVentures, AEP, The Columbus Foundation, IGS Energy, Safelite AutoGlass, and United Way of Central Ohio, invite you to this free information session to determine if social enterprise will be your nonprofit organization’s next endeavor to assist in financially supporting your mission.
This last of three sessions walks participants through the Nonprofit Catalyst initiative: How does it work? Who can apply? What can I expect? Past Catalyst participants will share their experiences related to the guided cohort model and how Catalyst helped them successfully navigate from ideation stage to established venture. Learn how Nonprofit Catalyst brings experts and mentors to nonprofit teams to develop a thoroughly-vetted business plan that’s ready to implement.
This series of three information sessions introduces participants to social enterprise and SocialVentures’ Nonprofit Catalyst Program, which includes a nine-month immersion initiative in partnership with CauseImpact to develop a launch-ready social enterprise. These sessions will also help nonprofit organizations determine if Nonprofit Catalyst is the right fit to advance the organization’s mission work in a sustainable way.
All three sessions, generously hosted by The Columbus Foundation, take place in Davis Hall. The Columbus Foundation is located at 1234 E. Broad St. The session begins at 10:00 am and ends at noon on Thursday, February 22, 2018. While all three sessions are free, seating is limited and advance registration for each session is required.
Applications to participate in Nonprofit Catalyst will open to all nonprofit organizations throughout Central Ohio on January 8, 2018. Scholarships are available. Applications for the program and for scholarship assistance will be available online.
