The Region's Best Minds Working on the Region's Biggest Challenges
Quarterly mastermind session coming alongside two social impact organizations
SVP Think Tank-a-Thons are a chance for active Nonprofit Community Partners to share a challenge or opportunity they face with a network of SVP Partners. Partners and prospective partners come together for a fun and social evening while using a structured design thinking process to generate ideas that could solve the nonprofit issue. It’s a great way to build connections and gain unique insights from different vantage points.
None of us have all the answers. But together, we likely have most of them.
How SVP Think Tank-a-Thons Work
Kick off with appetizers & Drinks for attendees
Two Investee nonprofit organizations craft problem statements around an issue they are currently facing
Investees have a quick pitch that explains their organization and the problem they are trying to solve – we could use the ‘quick pitch’ or could use the SVP Fast Pitch videos to introduce the orgs we select
Facilitator and scribe for each group
Partners break into two groups, one per nonprofit, and begin to brainstorm solutions to the problem raised by the Investee
Switch groups after 30 minutes to allow all attendees to work on both problems
Networking time before and after the brainstorming session(s)
