Starting Smart: A Lean Startup Guide for Nonprofits

Fail fast, break things, and challenge yourself. These are things we hear quite frequently in the startup world. Yet as a society we continually handle nonprofits with kid gloves. With a board, marketing and fundraising needs, and a goal to make an impact, why should we treat new nonprofits differently than a startup? Learn how a local nonprofit leveraged lean startup and agile methodologies to create a minimum viable product, fail, and pivot in a saturated charitable market to create awareness around a communal need in just four months. Whether you are looking to start or join a social entrepreneurship or nonprofit, learn how you can create a larger impact in your communities with for profit business methodologies from Geoff Davis and Melissa Schwass, Period Kits Co-Founders and Julianna Nelson, Period Kits Board Member.
