This September, we are partnering with Venture Carolina and VentureSouth to bring a unique, one-day seminar to Columbia, SC. Taking the Non Out of Nonprofit will bring together nonprofit executives, development directors and board members with industry leaders from across the state to help our social service community think less like a charity and more like a business.
"Our hope is to help bridge the divide between nonprofits and entrepreneurship," said Charlie Banks, managing partner of VentureSouth.
Registration will open in June along with the Innovation Challenge, where a select group of nonprofits will have the opportunity to present their profitable ideas to a panel of investors and funders, modeled after the popular show Shark Tank®. The pool of candidates will be culled down to three who will present during the conference on September 13. The winning proposal will receive a $5,000 award to fund the development and expansion of their effort.
