So what exactly in our SXSW Interactive Panel about?

In our panel, we aim to discuss ways social good organizations and nonprofits can use ‘Lean Startup’ principles to achieve their social mission. During this panel, we will have leaders in the social good space share how  they’re using Lean and attendees will learn the keys to using these principles with their own teams.

During this panel, here are some burning questions we will help answer for organizations looking to go lean:

  1. What is the Lean Startup (intro for social good organizations)?
  2. Who are some nonprofits and social enterprises who are totally nailing it using Lean principles?
  3. How can we adapt the fundraising cycle (foundations, donors, grants) to better suit Lean organizations?
  4. Ok, so small organizations can go Lean easily, but what about big organizations?
  5. How can you overcome resistance to using Lean in your organization?

Sound interesting? We thought so! So please, join the effort to bring lean startup into the social good world. Get out there and vote for the Lean Impact SXSW Panel now!
