Social Innovator Consultants

Each December the Social Innovation Forum brings on a set of consultants to support the new cohort of Social Innovators through the first phase of our nonprofit accelerator. Each consultant is matched with a Social Innovator organization and works closely with the organization's leader to develop a two-year plan for growth, create a four-page investment prospectus, and craft a five-minute pitch to be delivered at the May Social Innovator Showcase.
