There are 40 chapters of Social Venture Partners around the world and many run ‘Think Tank-a-thon’ style events. These 3-hour engagement opportunities provide nonprofits with a forum for sharing the discussing their most pressing issues. Partners learn about nonprofits in the community and engage in rich discussions and exercises aimed at increasing nonprofit capacity and impact.
SVP Sacramento is lucky to have Partner Joyce Hettrich leading the way for our Think Tank-a-thon events! Her background in design-thinking is the perfect fit for helping local nonprofits face their toughest challenges.
On August 1st, 2017, SVP Sacramento ran our 2nd Think Tank-a-thon with Joyce Hettrich and Monique Brown leading groups of partners supporting two SVP Fast Pitch nonprofits from 2017 – Families NOW and Child Development Centers. Attendees enjoyed appetizers and beverages from Lucca Restaurant while design-thinking their way past organizational roadblocks.
THANK YOU to all attendees and especially to Joyce Hettrich and Monique Brown for making our Think Tank-a-thon effective and engaging!
