Springboard Innovation has been hosting monthly Social Innovation Forums since 2008. In 2012 we shifted to quarterly "Re:Forums", exploring main themes across fewer events that went deeper with expert panels and workshops.
In 2013, we are able to put more emphasis on cities and counties
across the NW region, and will not be holding our major events in Portland.
New community capital events will be listed on a calendar shortly! You can review our years of events below and in the extensive list to the left.
COMMUNITY INVESTING IS NOW!
Jumpstarting Local Investing
Strengthening the Enterprise
The last in our series will offer new information and a platform for getting local and social enterprises ready for raising community capital. This includes nonprofits and forprofits at all stages of startup, growth, and scale. What will it take to particpate? Review the agenda.
How do you build people-powered communities? Help Jumpstart Local Investing in your communities.
We continue the tradition of the monthly Springboard Social Innovation Forum in offering a community-based evening designed to support those interested in creating a better future. Our focus is to help practitioners or potential practitioners of social projects push beyond discussion and debate into action.
We invite people from both the business and non-profit community - investors and activists - to join in, work together, and make this a model for other cities to adopt.
The Re:Forum creates a context to connect, learn, and take action around ideas that lead to tangible change. Our goal is to get the "toads out of the road," those roadblocks that just don't seem to move, so you can move forward with meaningful actions.
Chances are, you’ll have some good answers of your own. Each Re:Forum is your chance to talk about them with others in the community who share your concern. And if you have an idea ready to turn into action, you’ll find peers and friends ready to help.
